I went by what you wrote in your previous message:

If the .gds files are what you're trying to produce then yes indeed,
they should be on the target side.

??? If you're printing $< then it will print the layout.cdb files, not
the drop zone files.

If it printed them all then the .gds files must either not exist, or the
layout.cdb files must be newer.

If you really can't figure it out, run with debugging enabled and
redirect the output to a file (there will be a LOT of it).  It will tell
you why make decided each target was out of date.
