Follow-up Comment #3, bug #22434 (project make):

Your testcase is way too complex to be convenient - it would be more helpful
if you could make a self-contained example, rather than requiring people to
install Hg and then clone your repository and then autoconf a makefile and
only /then/ be able to even /start/ looking at the problem.

So this is only a guess, but it sounds like you've missed or misread the part
of the manual that explains that all dependencies are always supposed to be
prerequisites, and if you just want a goal as a dependency that doesn't make a
target file of the same name, you have to list it as a .PHONY target.  Are you
simply missing a .PHONY declaration to tell make that "Pokme" isn't the name
of a real output file?
