Follow-up Comment #3, bug #13529 (project make):

OK, I tracked down my problem and reduced it to a small testcase:

The Makefile looks like this:
vpath %.te test/
default: test/a test/b
test/a: fail.te
test/b : fail.te

test/ exists but is empty. When I run make with this makefile it complains:
"make: Circular test/b <- fail.te dependency dropped."
This seems like a bad interaction between vpath and .SECONDARY, if I remove
one of the two lines the problem goes away.

I don't know if this is fixable, but at least a nicer error message would be
very helpful.
