11.10 Comments in Make Rules
============================

Never put comments in a rule.

   Some `make' treat anything starting with a tab as a command for the
current rule, even if the tab is immediately followed by a `#'.  The
`make' from Tru64 Unix V5.1 is one of them.  The following makefile
runs `# foo' through the shell.

     all:
             # foo
