I'd expect that in Saxon, for this predicate, the difference is noticeable,
but whether it affects the overall stylesheet execution time is anyone's
guess. 

Another technique is 
select="//ptr[count(.|key('targets',@target)[1])=1]">

And incidentally:
select="/descendant::ptr[count(.|key('targets',@target)[1])=1]">

might save you a sort. (Saxon will do this optimisation for you in some
cases but probably not here)
