Agreed.  I have the same problem as you do (too many targets, even the ones with
descriptions).  I would ask that the default target still be shown in some
fashion, either the way it is now, or to do something like

Main targets:

  all ...
  check ...

Default target: all

That would probably be best, as its a short one liner sort of thing that won't
likely cause the screen to scroll badly.  It has the added advantage of
providing the information *after* the description of the target, which makes it
easier to read.
