Follow-up Comment #1, bug #23361 (project make):
This looks like the intended behaviour to me. See the manual chapter on
Since the file 'bar' always becomes newer every time it is remade, remake
always believes it has to start again, in case the contents have changed.
You probably want to look at something like the use of the 'move-if-change'
scripts used in gnu makefiles (e.g. binutils, gcc) to construct something in a
temporary file and only update the actual file on which there is a dependency
if the contents have changed.
