What I'm saying is that the gcc-help mailing list is not the right
place to ask for help understanding makefiles or using GNU make.  gcc-
help is for help with the GCC compiler.  GNU make is a completely
separate project, so you shouldn't be sending those questions to the
GCC list.

Instead you should send your questions about understanding makefiles or
using GNU make only to the mailing list, not the GCC

As for your question, I didn't fully understand it so when you send
questions to the mailing list, please include an
example of the part of the makefile that you don't understand, and/or
the make command you typed, and/or the output you received that was not
right, and explain why it wasn't what you expected and what you wanted
to happen instead.

Just to be clear, there is nothing built into GNU make that treats any
files ending with "_target" or "_type" in any special way at all, so
you won't find any reference to such a thing in the GNU make manual.

If something special is happening with those targets then something in
your makefiles is doing it.  We cannot guess what that might be, with
the information provided.
