I have noticed the following code fragment in a recipe which is mentioned in the section “Generating prerequisites automatically” of the documentation.

$(CC) -M $(CPPFLAGS) $< > $@.$$$$; \

The semicolon indicates at the end that the return value is ignored there. I imagine that further data processing should usually only be performed if this command succeeded.
Would you like to improve the exception handling for such a situation?
