What's wrong with having a phony target? We already have many of them,
and a standard way of dealing with them: as dependencies of the ‘.PHONY’
It seems to me that the whole point of adding ‘patch’ as a (phony)
target is to allow a dependency on that target, instead of something
patch-system-specific. What is your reasoning for wanting to diverge
