>From the OP's description it sounds like the makefile uses shell
redirection leaving the built file behind on failure so the next plain
`make' thinks it's already built.  Perhaps something to look out for in
general in the makefiles, or consider the addition of special target

    bar.out: bar
            ./foo bar >bar.out
            ./foo bar >bar.tmp && mv bar.tmp bar.out
