I'm not sure I understand the goal.  If make can't find a rule to build
a prerequisite, then by definition it must exist and cannot be further
chained.  So all you have to do to get the above behavior, is just not
define a rule to build those prerequisites.

Maybe you can provide an example and explain the problem you're trying
to solve, with details.
