 I've been wondering if it's possible to rewrite multiple output rules
 using make(1)'s ``archive'' feature.  For example, timezone data is
 defined in a few files, and zic(8) outputs many binary files.  If
 those output files are archived, its rule can be written as something
 like this:
 tzdata.a: data files
         zic -d tmpdir ... # compile text definitions and generate
 binary zone files
         cd tmpdir && ar r ../tzdata.a */* # create tzdata.a archive
