The best proposal I can come up with right now is to accept the
following command:
make arch/ia64/sn/fprom/ fprom

That should do the trick, if you go back to a fprom target without path.

So arch/ia64/sn/fprom/Makefile looks something like this:
.PHONY: fakeprom
fakeprom: $(obj)/fakeprom
	command to create fprom

Then you may add the whle fakeprom directory only on internal SGI kernels.
Or you could have a special Makefile for SGI.

Looks OK?
