With the enclosed makefile, running on tmpfs, gmake 4.0 loops forever
rerunning the recipe for objdir/ It does not happen with
gmake 3.82.

I originally ran into this in audio/flite's bulk build.

There is some chance it reflects a problem in tmpfs, but that doesn't
seem very likely.


Place the following on a tmpfs volume and run "gmake"; it will loop

   ------ begin Makefile ------
        echo all

        mkdir -p objdir || true

objdir/ objdir
        rm -f objdir/
        echo 'foo: bar' > objdir/

include objdir/
   ------ end Makefile ------
