Summary 0001657: make: section 'Makefile Syntax' contains unrelated requirements
Description > By default, the following files shall be tried in sequence: ./makefile and ./Makefile.

This requirement is not about the syntax of makefiles, it's about their names.
Desired Action Move the requirements on the names of makefiles to a separate section.

Alternatively, reword the section heading in line 104660.

Looking at the paragraphs that follow the quoted page and line number, I would prefer to go with the alternative proposed solution of changing the heading.

On page 3107 line 104660 change:
Makefile Syntax

Change page 3107 line 104640:
The make utility attempts to perform the actions required to ensure that the specified targets are up-to-date. A target shall be considered up-to-date ...
The make utility attempts to perform the actions, specified in one or more makefiles, required to ensure that specified targets are up-to-date. By default, the following files shall be tried in sequence: ./makefile and ./Makefile. If neither ./makefile nor ./Makefile is found, other implementation-defined files may also be tried. [XSI]On XSI-conformant systems, the additional files ./s.makefile, SCCS/s.makefile, ./s.Makefile, and SCCS/s.Makefile shall also be tried.[/XSI] The −f option shall direct make to ignore any of these default files and use the specified option-argument as a makefile instead. If this option-argument is '-', standard input shall be used.

The term makefile is used to refer to any rules provided by the user, whether in ./makefile or its variants, or specified by the −f option.

A target shall be considered up-to-date ...

and delete corresponding text in Makefile Syntax, pages 3107-3108 lines 104671-104678.
