See attached makefile for success/failure test results and other relevant

For files which are built by recipes in an included makefile, GNU make fails
catastrophically, even if all dependencies are satisfied and rules to build
the file to be included are defined.
This differs from the behavior of other implementations of make (as noted in
the attached makefile) as well as for the similar case of use of an internal
rule to generate the file to be included (e.g. using SCCS).

On an unrelated note: the supposedly-anti-spam filter annoyingly does not
accept the correct answer to "Please enter the title of George Orwell's famous
dystopian book (it's a date):", which is "Nineteen Hundred Eighty Four"
