Network Makefile wildcards

Using a makefile I want to compile all .c files in the current directory without specifying them directly and then link their associated .o files into a library.

How do I do this ?

They can be compiled one after another as usual, but I do not want to specify each c file specifically in the makefile hence the use of a wildcard.

Any ideas ?
