I'm not sure what you mean by "POSIX does not allow this".  But, POSIX
reserves all targets prefixed with "." (that are not already specified
in the standard) to the implementation.  So it's fine with POSIX to add
a pseudo target like .NOBUILTINS; no conforming makefile can use that
target for anything else.
