Follow-up Comment #9, bug #57751 (project make):

I don't believe that this (allowing $@ in prerequisites) is "traditional make"

However, I admit to being surprised when I went to look at the POSIX spec for
make that it is very wishy-washy and unclear as to exactly where the internal
macros are available.  It just says they "can be used in target and inference
rules".  I would have expected it to say that specifically that they can be
used in commands.

So, maybe I'm wrong.

In any event, I assumed that this is a typo.  I thought that the rule was
intended to be:


Note the added semicolon.

Is it really the case that you define the _COMMAND_ to run SCCS get operations
as _PREREQUISITES_ to the special target?

That's.... horrible and disgusting.
