This is incorrect. Not only you can override the suffix rules like
in every other make, but also gnu make also supports pattern rules
which are a lot more general and flexible than suffix rules. This
is the major shortcoming of pmake [or bmake - whatever you want to
call it]. It is a few hours of code to implement pattern rules,
and once this is done, pmake will be as flexible as gmake.
