replacing $<

Solaris 2.6, Autoconf 2.57.

I guess I need to replace my use of $< in a Makefile.

In a I have:

%.1: ../pod/%.pod
        pod2man --center="SWISH-E Documentation" --lax --release='$(VERSION)' 
$< > $@

When I build on Solaris $< doesn't seem to get used:

pod2man --center="SWISH-E Documentation" --lax --release='2.4.0-pr4-2003-10-19' 
   > swish-e.1
*** Error code 2 (ignored)

Notice that the $< isn't being supplied.

I don't really understand the problem, but is my only solution to create 
a separate rule for each .pod -> .1 file?

I guess I'm looking for an example of how to correctly write the above.
