You mean, when you run make -p it's not there?

I can't say.  I've never heard of anything like that.

Offhand I'd say you have a stray "\" before that line, or you have
variables in it that aren't expanding as you expect so that the rule
doesn't appear in the rule database as you expect, or maybe you have a
problem with your TAB indentation.

What version of GNU make are you using?  What OS are you running it on?
