Summary 0001615: make: allow slashes and hyphens characters in target names
Description It is very common to see Makefiles that use '-' character to separate action and object in target. For example, autotools generates install-strip target and may also generate install-bin, install-man and so on.

'/' character is also very common and useful. Rather than putting sources into a top-level directory, people usually put them into a src directory and then specify relative paths to them in top-level Makefile. This allows having more clean and organized project structure.

No make implementations that I am aware of have this restriction that current standard mandates. Here is the list of make implementations that I checked:

- NetBSD make
- FreeBSD make
- OpenBSD make
- GNU make
- AIX make
- Illumos make
- Schily SunPro make
Desired Action Change:

"solely of periods, underscores, digits, and alphabetics from the portable character set"

to:

"solely of slashes, hyphens, periods, underscores, digits, and alphabetics from the portable character set"
