May > this also be the case for FreeBSD? Since the make is the same, the answer would be yes. But it may not be a bug in make itself: $ echo hi > test.1.man $ make -r -f /homes/sjg/make-tests/suffix2 test.1 Making test.1 from test.1.man $ make -f /homes/sjg/make-tests/suffix2 test.1 make: don't know how to make test.1. Stop make: stopped in /tmp $ Will look deeper... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
