(BTW it works as intended in clearmake, granted the code path is different)

The rule has some non-variable data which is still not found in the db.
I am actually suspecting VPATH/vpath stuff.
My reason is that it works fine after a clean, but not after a partial build.
I am still scrutinizing -d -p outputs for both runs.
Decidedly confusing for me.
