Could you kind take a look at this and let me know
if this is included in later versions.
The attached patch and file provide joe with a makefile mode.

I had forwarded your patch upstream, but they didn't include it yet.
I adjusted it to the 3.5 syntax (there's now a ftyperc), and started
using it, and then I realized the possible reason why they didn't include
it - it's ugly :) The colors are way too intense compared to typical joe

The red underlined square is just plain uncalled for :)
The parser that detects Space is also buggy. For example, joe-3.5/Makefile
lines 318 and 321 end with it, for no apparent reason.

The yellow $( ) are most annoying, too.

This one is are also buggy.
In joe-3.5/Makefile:829 it colors .NOEXPORT: as a Label, instead of as
> =Assignment bold green
In joe-3.5/Makefile:238 it colors "all:" as an Assignment (variable),
rather than as a target, which makes them indistinct, sort of defeating
the point of highlighting...
