I don't know much of it's details, I never had to write a makefil from
scratch so far (I've used tons of build systems but not make directly).
I'll learn it to make my understanding of the syntax faster.
I still feel this is a weird exception to have a target built automatically
but not the others (or any target actually), it feels non-uniform.
But it's not super important.
