Instead of adding a new special target, extend the .NOTPARALLEL special target. Currently, it ignores prerequisites.

The new version would block parallel builds in the entire makefile when there were no prerequisites; when it did have prerequisites, it would block parallel builds on only those targets. Other targets in the makefile could run concurrently.

please,please add a `.MUTEX' directive. Usefull only for parallel runs (-j switch)

.MUTEX directive avoids parallel run of selected tasks.
Selected task can be run in any order, but not in parallel.
It would probably solve also a problem with updating archives and double colon rules.
