I would like to clarify further software design aspects around such make functionality.

We might stumble on different interpretations according to the wording “file basis”.
Do you find a message like “make: Nothing to be done for 'path/to/file.c'.” interesting then?

* Would you like to add any links for information around the support for
source code checkers?
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/Makefile?id=7c30b859a947535f2213277e827d7ac7dcff9c84#n198

* How do you think about to enclose the path for the shown parameter
by single quotes instead of double quotes?

* Can such path specifications become more interesting occasionally
if also an other file extension would be chosen than “.c”?
Would you like to achieve any software extensions around suffix rules?

Regards,
Markus
