Summary 0001704: Use simpler wording for '+' prefix character
Description Line 104753 says:
> If the command prefix contains a <plus-sign>, this indicates a makefile command line that shall be executed even if -n, -q or -t is specified.

Does the phrase 'indicates that' have any intended special meaning? The other prefix characters have clearer, more direct wording.
Desired Action In line 104753, replace:
this indicates a makefile command line that

the command line

When applying this bug I noticed that the affected text has a similar issue to bug 0001693 in that it uses "command line" when it doesn't intend the prefix to be included. So I changed the text to say "the command shall be executed" instead of "the command line shall be executed". This is also consistent with the description of the '-' prefix which says "any error found while executing the command shall be ignored".
