Follow-up Comment #1:

I wrote some tests for this and discovered there were some odd corner cases
where included files were not loaded and also no error was thrown.  These
might have been due to changes only in Git.  I added more regression tests,
fixed the problems, and updated the documentation to make clear that phony
targets are treated just like double-colon targets without prerequisites: they
are never used to update included makefiles.

Thanks for the report!
