# The user-driven targets are:

... so what?
Can't find any info about this in /usr/src/UPDATING. Can you?
I'm not saying that I can't figure out how to make world again. I just
don't agree with the decision to put that stupid message in Makefile.
I suppose that a person typing make world as root already knows what
she's going to do.
