Update of bug #43757 (project make):

              Item Group:                     Bug => Enhancement            


Follow-up Comment #1:

The problem is this; the GNU make manual says: "a file cannot be intermediate
if it is mentioned in the makefile as a target or prerequisite".  That
includes a being mentioned as a target in a target-specific variable

By mentioning the target, you have disabled intermediate file status for that
target.  That's why using a pattern-specific variable assignment doesn't
"disable" intermediate-ness: that's not explicitly mentioning a target.

It's quite possible this is not ideal, and GNU make should not treat targets
in target-specific variable assignments as "mentioned" in the context of
intermediate files.  I'll leave this bug open as an enhancement request.
