The existing target is specifically a file target, it's a command to
create output. It only exists as:

ninja doc/website.tar.gz

The website target is a toplevel pseudo-target, you can run it directly
from the build tree and it will depend on the tarball being up to date
rather than always rerunning bsdtar. I don't like the idea of turning
the whole thing into one always-rebuilding pseudo-target.
