I thought that being able to jump to the rule in the makefile would be
helpful, but in the end I think it ends up being more annoying
(especially because the pathname is not always right, and so Emacs often
can't find the makefile anyway).

So, I combined these two lines into a single line which won't be
recognized by normal error line parsers (such as Emacs) but can still be
interpreted (hopefully) by users who want to find the rule:

  make: [Makefile:22: target] Error 1


This will be in the next release.
