Hi Bernd,

Echoing Keith's "No" it would make sense to not have them unless they're
something like an if-statement or a change to the environment, e.g.
current working directory, is needed by later commands.  Also, sometimes
those `;' could perhaps be `&&' to mimic make's own `stop on failure' if
a `set -e' isn't in place.

Cheers, Ralph.
