However, note that Ken's idea won't work so well.

By creating "always" as a prerequisite, and making it .PHONY, it means
that "always" is always out of date.

That means that everything that depends on "always" is also always out
of date.

Which means make will rebuild these things every single time.

You could try using order-only prerequisites, instead of simple
prerequisites.  See the GNU make manual.
