Makefile: rely on GNU make; derive syntax-check rule names Rather than requiring that each sc_ rule be listed as a dependent of "check", use features of GNU make to derive the list. * Makefile (syntax-check-rules): Define. (check): Depend on the new variable, not the hard-coded list. Add a comment listing a few requirements.
