MUST GNUstep Makefiles be called GNUmakefile?

it seems to be necessary to name a GNUstep makefile 'GNUmakefile' and nothing 
else, otherwise "make" complains with 

        make[1]: GNUmakefile: No such file or directory
        make[1]: *** No rule to make target `GNUmakefile'.  Stop.

Is there a political or technical reason for this? I'm asking because I'd like 
to submit to the guy who wrote the "contacts" tool a Makefile which makes 
compilation possible under GNUstep with MyFolks.framework. The idea is to have 
a Makefile.OSX and a Makefile.GNUstep in the tar file and use "make -f 
Makefile.$PLATFORM" to compile. It'd be really nice to have that.
