In reading the GNU Make Manual

not clear to me whether a space is allowed between a target name and the
colon(':').  For example, are the expressions "all:" and "all :"
equivalent?  And is the expression "all : symlinks pdf" equivalent to
"all: symlinks pdf" ?


Spaces are allowed after the target name. Yes, those are equivalent.
