Follow-up Comment #2, bug #16389 (project make):

I don't really understand the urgency around this: why not just add the rules
into your makefile if you need them?  The built-in rules are just that:
built-in; they can be added to or removed in makefiles.

I do realize this means that any makefile that uses objective-C needs to be
changed, but the same is true for any number of other languages that make
doesn't provide default rules for.

Further, even if we do change this for the next release of GNU make that
won't be out for some months, then it will be many months more before that
version is considered wide spread (I know of distros that still ship GNU make
3.79.1, and MANY that still use 3.80 more than a year after 3.81 was

And finally, of course, requiring default rules just means makefiles are even
more tightly tied to GNU make (since no other make provides these default
rules as far as I know).
