I think that what's really going on here (in the DVI/PS/PDF example)
is that you have dvi generated ps, and you have pdf generated ps.

I think that it's a mistake for these two different types of generated
files to have exactly the same directory/name.

If I were to create the DVI file, then create the PS, then create the
PDF, edit the DVI and then generate the PS from the PDF, you're now in
a situation where your PS file is out of date but there's no way for
make to know it.
