The problem is that make doesn't recognize that the "$(CURDIR)/Makefile"
target is the same as the "Makefile" file that it was invoked with, so
it doesn't find any rule to rebuild just "Makefile".

Why are you writing this as $(CURDIR)/Makefile instead of just Makefile?
If you change your rule to:

   Makefile: globalconfig/Makefile

it means the same thing (as far as I can see), and it then works.
