Follow-up Comment #1, bug #54816 (project make):

wildcard invokes the system glob() function.  It doesn't do any extra checking
beyond that, that I recall (like a stat etc.)  I don't know why glob() would
not return symlinks but I couldn't find anything in the man page about it,
either way.  I'll need to debug it.
