bug#59288: Makefile grows huge due to repeated lines

This was noticed when configuring curl: https://github.com/curl/curl/issues/9843

Curl's lib/Makefile might grow to fill all the available disk space on some Linux systems (observed on Debian 11).

On my Arch Linux system, the Makefile fortunately stays at around 14MB. Curl developer's comment in the GitHub issue on the number of repetitions in my Makefile: "The 628 number is curious. It seems to be the number of lib source files times two!"

I bisected the problem to

deps: fix corner-case "make distclean" bug

Repro steps:

On automake's side:

$ ./bootstrap && ./configure --prefix=/tmp/amdev && make && make install

On curl's side (the configure options are from LibreOffice where this was originally observed):

$ am=/tmp/amdev
$ env PERL5LIB=$am/lib AUTOMAKE="$am/bin/automake" ACLOCAL="$am/bin/aclocal" autoreconf -fi
$ ./configure \
  --without-gnutls --without-mbedtls \
  --enable-ftp --enable-http --enable-ipv6 \
  --without-libidn2 --without-libpsl --without-librtmp \
  --without-libssh2 --without-nghttp2 \
