That's not true.

I added a "%.o: %.cpp ; cp $< $@" implicit rule to the sample makefile I
sent in my previous message, then ran it with the -r flag, and it worked

There must have been some other difference in your makefile.

As these things all work for me, there must be something about your
makefile or environment that is not described in your email, that's
causing the problem.

A sample makefile such as I sent in my previous message that
demonstrates the behavior you're seeing is the only way for me to
explain it to you...
