Your makefile works for me (with "make foo", given a foo.in) if I change that 
line to read:

I'm trying to use the following single-suffix rule:

  .SUFFIXES = .in

          echo dot-in

My understanding is that the rule should be triggered whenever there
exists a file whose name is equal to the target name plus the `.in'
suffix.  For instance, "make foo" should trigger the rule when `foo.in'
exists.  However, that does not happen.

Am I missing something or are single-suffix rules somehow broken?
