Thanks. :)

I am glad it worked. :)

Mmm, the reason why make does not fail is that we have a crude (but
functional) way to tell if a makefile target exists.  But we do not have
that for ninja and honestly, I have no idea how we would make it either.

If you have an idea, I would be happy to look at implementing it.

Indeed; merged for debhelper 11.2.
