I'm not sure Make can distinguish between the two kinds.  E.g., the
rules for generating the "phony" target could be given later.  Paul
will know for sure.

And anyway, wouldn't it be confusing if case-sensitivity changed
depending on whether a file exists or doesn't?

Yes.  AFAIR, We deliberately down-case file names we read from the
filesystem before recording them in the Make's internal memory.
