Unlike makefiles explicitly requested with ‘-f’ or ‘--file’ options,
make is not certain that
these makefiles should exist. However, if a default makefile does not
exist but can be created
by running make rules, you probably want the rules to be run so that
the makefile can be

Suppose if i do not have any makefile at the working directory and i
run `make` command.
The manual says this command will create a makefile by running make
rules! When there is no makefile, where will be those make rules?

Meanwhile in my Fedora box I get the following error by running make
without makefiles:
"make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop."
