Follow-up Comment #2, bug #35455 (project make):

Thanks for that. Looking at it, I think the point is that

   foo: bar-stamp

would leave make baffled about how it is supposed to make foo from bar-stamp;

   foo: bar-stamp ;

means that the way to do it is to do nothing (and rely on the side-effect);
and also that there is now a reason to consider whether foo has changed as a
result of the side-effect. I think this last point is why I needed to make the
change to my Makefiles.
