For now it's fine calling it the 'Make Custom Target' command. But we
were discussing how to refer to it in a more general way, because the
command doesn't even have to use 'make' at all. E.g, in the
configuration dialog:

Filetype Commands
General Commands
  Custom: "./waf build "

When the user clicks on the 'Build->Custom Command' menu item, a dialog
appears with "./waf build " as the contents, but they can still edit it
- e.g. for adding arguments.
