Correct. I do the same here.
I also do use make to produce LaTeX documents. I even `published' my
collection of makefiles at https://gna.org/projects/bsdmakepscripts/
There is some terse indications for using these makefiles in a TeX
(much more need to be written as usual). An interesting feature of
these scripts is the good integration of METAPOST and BIBTEX (this is
not yet exemplified).
As you have guessed, make can be used for much more than C files
compilation, but as it has been pointed out, these other uses are not
conceptually different from the `C-case'. In fact in the typical way
of using a UNIX-like workstation, data is processed through a stack of
elementary treatments in order to obtain a final object (whether it is
a program, a PostScript file or a full web site). This is why make can
be viewed as the central part of the work with a UNIX-like workstation
(sharing its place with an editor of your choice).
