I thought so as well, but in fact, even if I have
all:  foo bar
For some reason make actually wants to build bar before foo (maybe because
foo and bar are both phony targets which invoke other things?)  Anyway, for
whatever reason, the left to right order is violated in my particular case,
and that's even before thinking about -j, which I also use.  Sometimes I run
"make foo" frequently and I want it to be as fast as possible without doing
the wrong thing...
