Some makefiles build some files in an other directory, compare the files and eventualy they copy in the right location. It is an hack. It should be included in the makefile syntax.
make is also not so good (with a simple syntax) to handle double output files and semi circular dependencies (i.e. one makefile line to compile and generate the dependencies (.d files) for next make run)
The use of "touch" in a makefile show also design flaw to makefile syntax
I'll happy only after extentions of makefile (or a new make like tools) that could compile efficently (with short and simple syntax) also TeX and LaTeX files.
