$* doesn't work for me - it returns empty string, while using in this way:
all: app.bin

        touch $@
        echo \$$* = $*

When I run this Makefile, GNU Make 3.81 gives following output:
touch app.bin
echo \$* =
$* =

However, clearmake gives following (expected by me) result:
        touch app.bin
        echo \$* = app
$* = app

$(*D) and $(*F) variables also return empty string in GNU Make.
