Follow-up Comment #4, bug #42125 (project make):

(I hope this comment doesn't contribute to an unwanted design discussion.)
Regarding comment #1: _A static pattern rule is a form of explicit rule, not
an implicit rule such as pattern rule._ - While saying that a _static pattern
rule_ is not a _pattern rule_ seems true for the current implementation, I
find this quite counterintuitive and unfortunate. I think, a _static pattern
rule_ should be a _pattern rule_ (in terms of manual section 10.5.1), only
with the set of applicable targets restricted to the specified *targets*.
