I suspect he's confused by the use of the word "makefile" here, having
lost the distinction between the unitary file typically called
"[Mm]akefile" and a generic file in make syntax which may be included
into it. It probably wouldn't hurt to refer to the latter as a
"prerequisite file" or "prerequisite makefile" in the quoted sentence.
