The r\maxima is documented in paragraph 1.2.2 of the Notation Guide.  It works for me, see below.
It is, of course, not right in perfect mode, with three breves to the long,
in which case each long rest should fill three spaces.

    \relative c'' {
      \set Score.timing = ##f
      \set Score.defaultBarType = "empty"
      \override NoteHead #'style = #'neomensural
      \override Staff.TimeSignature #'style = #'neomensural
      \clef "petrucci-g"
        g1.  g2 \[ a\breve  g\breve c\breve b\longa \]
        g1.  g2 \[ a\breve  g\breve d'\breve c\longa \]
        g1.  g2 \[ g'\breve e\breve c\breve b\breve a\longa.\]
        f'1. f2 \[ e\breve  c\breve d\breve c\maxima \]

    \context {
      \remove Ligature_bracket_engraver

Baroque, and there is some oblique reference to this in the
