Follow-up Comment #5, bug #63821 (project make):

> The title is slightly misleading

Hopefully, subsequent description made it clear.

> Curious why you decided to install the default suffix rules after
snap_deps() @dgoncharov .

i wanted to install default suffix rules as close to convert_to_pattern as
possible. i think, it makes it easier to follow the logic in main.
install_default_suffix_rules, convert_to_pattern,
install_default_implicit_rules all belong together.

Are you thinking about the prior impl of snap_deps? We modified snap_deps and
removed that code that expanded prerequisites of .SUFFIXES. See
Or do you see a use case that requires install_default_suffix_rules before

> was there something that didn't work right if you did it between defining
the makeflags and snap_deps(), rather than after?

No. Either way it works the same, as far as i can see.
