No.  Read the POSIX make standard.  Follow the thread:  It is the lynx
makefile that is the problem.  ".h" is NOT a standard default in .SUFFIXES;
it MUST be specified explicitly, even if it "just works" out of luck because
of nonstandard defaults on some OS's or older versions of some OS's.

I can't vouch for emacs as I haven't seen the technical details of that
problem.  If it is also related to the build assuming that .SUFFIXES
includes ".h", then its makefiles are also broken.
