idea: it is really good when your default rule prints a nice help message and does nothing else. Pretty much all my makefiles are this way: the default rule is "help", e.g. gitlab.com/cadadr/configuratio

This way, if you or someone else can easily learn what important rules are there, and if they mistakenly run make with no specific rule, nothing unexpected happens.
