Good Morning,

systemd is using .DELETE_ON_ERROR to simplify some rules[1] but the
side-effect is that during make check and a failing test the result
of 'test-suite.log' will be deleted as well. I 'fixed' this by adding
.PRECIOUS: $(TEST_SUITE_LOG) to the file but that is triggering the
following warning: warning: user target '.PRECIOUS' defined here ...
/usr/share/automake-1.13/am/ ... overrides Automake target
'.PRECIOUS' defined here

Is there a better way to ask automake/make to keep the test-suite.log
around? Is there a way to make the warning go away?

kind regards
