No rule to make target

I am getting this message:

make[2]: *** No rule to make target `dep-gnu-pw-mgr.1', needed by 
`gnu-pw-mgr.1'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/u/gnu/proj/gnu-pw-mgr-bld/doc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Seems like a real neophyte problem, but this neophyte has a problem deciphering 
The original Makefile.am and derived Makefile contain:

-include dep-gnu-pw-mgr.1
gnu-pw-mgr.1 : dep-gnu-pw-mgr.1
dep-gnu-pw-mgr.1 :
        $(call gen_man,gnu-pw-mgr,opts.def)

(And, yes, that last line starts with a tab character, in case it gets changed.)

Obviously hard wired to GNU Make.  In any case, it sure looks to me like
there is a target rule for dep-gnu-pw-mgr.1, so what am I missing?
I've added the original Makefile.am, in case that is helpful and
if it makes it through the mail filters.

Thanks in advance!
