Follow-up Comment #1, bug #51311 (project make):


You've opened this as a bug. I believe it is not a bug.  Again. I'm not a

Please note two things.

1. while "MOTD%.log: MOTD%.txt" is a pattern rule, "MOTD%.log: MOTD%.txt
MOTD%.in" is not a pattern rule, because it has two entries after the colon. 
So your interpretation is incorrect.

2. The '%' (the stem) in a pattern rule doesn't, if I recall correctly, match
a null string.  It needs to match at least a single character, so building
MOTD.log won't work.
