It definitely shouldn't.  Patterns are tested in the order they are
defined, and any pattern defined in a makefile is tested before any
builtin pattern.

I wonder if this isn't because the directory doesn't exist: have you
tried running this when the $(BLDDIR)/stamp file is up to date?  Or only
when it needs to be created?
