+In case of a dependency chain, if the chain ends with a colon (\c{:}), then
+the block applies to the last set of prerequisites. Otherwise, it applies to
+the last set of targets. For example:
-./: exe{test}: libue{test}: cxx{test}
+./: exe{test}: cxx{main}
+ test = true # Applies to the exe{test} target.
+./: exe{test}: libue{test}:
bin.whole = false # Applies to the libue{test} prerequisite.
