Follow-up Comment #2, bug #27374 (project make):

Oops.  I get the same message; I hadn't noticed that it scrolled off the top
of my terminal.

Nonetheless, I still think make should drop dead immediately in this case and
also return an error status.  My understanding is that 'include' may sometimes
(always?) ignored a missing included file, but I don't think that this
condition sensibly falls under that mandate.

(I'm tempted to say that make should specifically disallow a file from
including itself (even indirectly).  Perhaps there is some use for this,
