It seems that I need to try harder for the desired clarification of
consequences when a specific source file (like an interface description file
for the programming language “OCaml”) can be occasionally treated as
an optional item in some software areas.

There will not be any make rule specified for a file type which was
intentionally left out for a specific source item.
The general challenge is to find out for how long something can be omitted
(while its use can be recommended in several situations).
