It's supposed to say, "if this file is missing, but all its
dependencies and dependents are otherwise up-to-date, don't rebuild
it unless explicitly requiested" AFAIK. It could be used with .o
files that get put in a Unix archive, for example, so that the .o
files can be deleted without causing a rebuild.
