 I think the original point was that "make" by itself doesn't do
 anything, and it probably should. A typical set-up would have
 ./configure            # configure environ...
 make                   # compile the code
 make install	        # compile, if not compiled, and install
 make clean             # remove all compiled code
 make distclean         # same as clean

 It's nice to be able to "make" all of the objects, before actually
 putting them in place. Then if errors come up, you don't have a broken
 system installed.
