Well, if automake had a parser that could reliably detect all of GNU
make-specific syntax and skip over that, then it could just as well
interpret it, too, at least those parts that do not still contain

Just to set expectations straight a bit more, automake isn't even able
to distinguish between rules and other code in all cases (and it's
rather slow already).

Hope that helps.
