For a makefile that has two double-colon rules to update a target, if the target can be found in the VPATH and the first double-colon rule does not trigger an update, then the path name found through VPATH directory search is used even if the second double-colon rule would have caused an update.

I have included a very short shell script to reproduce the minimal setup.

This is a bug on Make 3.80 and Make 3.81beta1
