Sure there are dialects of make. There is a subset syntax that is  
well supported
by make(1), that is all that is being suggested using --queryformat -- 
specsrpm against
*.spec to extract a make rule from a rpm tag without macros or other

Hmmm ...

[jjohnso1@localhost dist]$ ls -al /bin/{true,false}
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 29908 2008-08-04 08:47 /bin/false
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 29908 2008-08-04 08:47 /bin/true

Which application should I prefer if they are both the same size?
