How does the date of last change in a makefile affects the make algorithm?
For example if we have a makefile which is last modified date is 26 of January and the files that the rules are referred to have later dates (eg 28 January).

It doesn't, unless some rules explicitly refer to the makefile itself.

It isn't a strict rule but there is no sence to do that in makefile but it is possible to do that. It depend on person who created makefile what "insert into file". Without file, we can only gues.
