I grepped the entire GNU make source code for the message "make multiple
target patterns" and didn't find it.

Can you be more specific about the problem?  A small simple makefile
that illustrates it, along with the command you invoked, the output you
got (all cut/pasted please) and why you feel this output is wrong or
insufficient would be best.
