Anyone have any idea how to remove a trailing (back) slash from a directory?
$(patsubst %\,%,$(VARIABLE))

will do it.

Awesome Paul, thanks. I didn't realize you could use % in patsubst.

Sure, that's what the "pat" in "patsubst" stands for: "pattern".

Are you sure that would match everything up to the slash though, including base directories and other slashes that might be there? I thought % only matched the non-directory part of a file.

Yes I'm sure.  You can check the documentation:

        Here PATTERN may contain a `%' which acts as a wildcard,
        matching any number of any characters within a word.

Thanks again for the clarification. My makefile is starting to shape up right thanks to you.
