Follow-up Comment #11, bug #61226 (project make):
In the abstract, it seems to me that if a user asks to include a file and that
file doesn't exist, that the include should generate some kind of error.
However, maybe you're right that if a rule exists that tells make how to build
that included file we should not generate an error as long as the recipe for
that rule doesn't fail, even if the included file still doesn't exist after
the recipe is run.
I'm still not excited about the idea of distinguishing recipes that are empty,
versus recipes that are not empty but don't update the target file.
