Well, what I meant was that this makefile works as intended - the intended 
result being, that all the .o files are listed in the file srcs.

The reason that I was not sure, even though I read the same thing you read in 
the manual, is that I do see sometimes a few file names missing.  This is of 
course on Windows, but I am not sure if that is related - if you, as you say 
make does, finish one append to srcs before you attempt another, you should be 
fine here, I don't expect Windows would have a bug where you could not serially 
do many >> srcs commands.
