[bug #23361] Infinite loop when including file that depends on a phony target

Update of bug #23361 (project make):
Status: None => Not A Bug
Open/Closed: Open => Closed
Follow-up Comment #2:
Dave's comment is correct. This is behaving as expected. Not ideally, but
as expected. Since make re-execs itself it's actually quite difficult to know
what files were already built by a previous incarnation.
For a while I had a feature where the re-exec would add -o options for all
makefiles rebuilt so that the next invocation would not try to rebuild them.
However, some people rely on this behavior AND it also caused problems with
makefiles that have lots of included files: the re-exec was failing due to
running out of environment space.
