Modification time versus existence

Hi, Is there a way for me to get make to rebuild a target only if it does not exist, and not merely when it's timestamp is updated ? The example that I have in mind is that a certain file requires that a certain directory exists; however, during the make, other files are added to that same directory meaning that it's timestamp is updated. Make then tries to remake the file even though the directory already existed. regards Brendan
