Ø  short stem 1


That's what I see from eg make-4.1.90 from git (2014-10-05).  The NEWS file dates make-3.81 to 2006-04-01.

Item: Bug

Privacy: Public

Component Version: 3.81

Operating System: POSIX-based


When several pattern rules match a target, the one with the shortest stem should be used as stated in the documentation:


However, the following Makefile does not behave as expected:



            @echo "long stem $*"



            @echo "short stem $*"


$ make aaa12

long stem 12


I would have expect:


$ make aaa12

short stem 1
