Yea, I'd believe that. Here's my 30-second Makefile howto (below is a makefile)
exeutable_name: cfile1.c cfile2.c cfile3.c
rm -f *.o executable_name
in your case, just do an ls *.c, and then copy that list after the "executable-name", which you'll probably want to change to something more interesting anyway.
