make-dependency with multiple targets


I'm just doing my first steps with make(1). The following Makefile
should create some postfix maps upon invocation:

        MAPS = client sender

        ${MAPS:S/$/.db/g}: ${MAPS}
                postmap ${.ALLSRC}

This does work pretty well but if nothing has to be done, make confuses
me with an inconsistent message:

        `client.db' is up to date.

While I would expect something like:

        `client.db sender.db' is up to date.

or even:

        `client.db' is up to date.
        `sender.db' is up to date.

I assume I missed something.
