Follow-up Comment #1:

Hm.  I'm not sure that there's anywhere in the make manual that says or
implies that simply because a target is declared .PHONY, it will never be
stat()ed.  I can see this could be considered a performance enhancement but
on the other hand there might be good reasons to stat() even .PHONY files. 
I'll have to look into this carefully.  However, for now I'm reclassifying
this as an enhancement request.
