11.10 Comments in Make Rules

Never put comments in a rule.

Some make treat anything starting with a tab as a command for the current rule, even if the tab is immediately followed by a #. The make from Tru64 Unix V5.1 is one of them. The following makefile runs # foo through the shell.

     all:
             # foo
