text/x-makefile has
    <glob pattern="makefile*"/>
and text/html obviously has
    <glob pattern="*.html"/>

This breaks for files like makefile-distfiles.html if the first one is evaluated before
the second one.

Perhaps the pattern matching should match first those that start with * and then those that end with *?
Or maybe this can be fixed/emulated by using different priorities?
