It sems to work with BSD make, I've tried it.

	% make foo
	... starts compiling foo.c ...

The only thing I would change is the order of the last
arguments, which should be "-o $@ $<" (input files last),
and a space after ":" in the first line (for better
reading). Anyway, it seems to be compatible.

Of course, in my testing case OBJDIR and SRCDIR are
empty, and I didn't define any of CC, CFLAGS, INCDIR or
LIBDIR, so the defaults have been chosen.

Do you encounter a specific problem?
