Bug#569967: --touch --dry-run

X-debbugs-CC: address@hidden
Package: make
Version: 3.81-7
Severity: wishlist

On (info "(make) Instead of Execution")
we see
   It is an error to use more than one of these three flags in the same
   invocation of `make'.
Well, I got away with -nt.
and the -n was ignored.

So you should warn on the man page and info page, that -nt acts like -t.
$ cat Makefile
        echo hello
$ make -nt
touch e
$ make -nt
make: `e' is up to date.
