Thank you Paul - perfect hit!

Indeed, adding 2 fresh rules like

        ln -snf $$(basename $<) $@

        ln -snf $$(basename $<) $@

allowed make to find the chain right... but should not it be
parametrised, ie "implicit rule cannot appear more than X (X now is 1)
times in the chain"... and X (default 1) could be overridden in Makefile.
I think it would of some use... just my 0.1 cents
