It seems make-4 changed behaviour from make-3 when it comes to archive updates.

I have a source file, x.c.

I want it in a library so I type

make 'libx.a(x.o)'

and make happily builds it for me.

I then try to build it again and type

make 'libx.a(x.o)'

In this case make-3.82 tells me libx.a is up to date while make-4 rebuilds
the library just as if it wasn't present.

Is this an intentional change and if so, what is the rationale?
