No! It is not normal to run it three times when you sometimes need only one pass and sometimes four. Use this in your Makefile, it will recurse just enough:

# Solution by Rafael Laboissiere <rafael@xxxxxxxxxxx>
%.dvi: %.tex
       $(JADETEX) $< 
       if ! cmp $(shell basename $< .tex).aux prior.aux 2>/dev/null && \
          expr $(MAKELEVEL) '<' $(MAX_TEX_RECURSION); then \
               cp -pf $(shell basename $< .tex).aux prior.aux ; \
               rm -f $@ ; \
               $(MAKE) $@ ; \
       rm -f prior.aux
