Follow-up Comment #5, bug #61328 (project make):

I may have phrased it wrong. I just meant to bring up "a question that might
reasonably be raised" and rebut it in advance.

My understanding is that by assuming "foo/" == "foo" make would be introducing
at least a little bit of that distinction. Because while "dir" == "dir/" is
true, "file" == "file/" is false since the latter is an error at stat() time.
But maybe I'm missing something?
