Follow-up Comment #1, bug #46193 (project make):

Fail-stops aren't limited to crashes.  Ctrl-Z and network splits sometimes
stop make from removing a half-written target.  At this shop, we aim to write
rules that only write into temporary files, renaming them to the desired name
once writing has completed successfully.  This also saves us from persistent
breakage when multiple builds accidentally contend.  Perhaps someone has a
write-up linked to from http://make.mad-scientist.net/#resources of how to do
this without duplication.
