Summary 0001707: Clarify meaning of 'use'
Description Line 104786 says:
> If the makefile uses this special target, [...]

Does this wording mean that if the makefile merely _defines_ a .DEFAULT target but doesn't actually use it, the application need not 'ensure that it is specified with commands, but without prerequisites'?
Desired Action Reword line 104786 to avoid the above uncertainty.
