Yes, this is bad.  The fix is simple as you suggest.

Here's a smaller test case:

$ cat test.make

all: foo.suffix1 foo.suffix2  prefix1.foo prefix2.foo

prefix1.% prefix2.%: %.original
@echo $@
%.suffix1 %.suffix2: %.original
@echo $@

.PHONY: foo.original

# Expected output
$ make -f test.make

# Actual output
$ ./make -f test.make
make: file.c:147: enter_file: Assertion `*name != '\0'' failed.

I notice that this bug was reported previously but without a fix being proposed:
"Make fails on glibc build"

By the way, the previous message was posted by me (mrs@mythic-beasts.com) but I wasn't logged in to Savannah at the time.

I got the following assertion failure when building GNU libc with the current CVS version of make:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/work/nacl/2/googleclient/native_client/glibc-2.9/elf'
make: file.c:147: enter_file: Assertion `*name != '\0'' failed.

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.

The problem is in this change:
This assignment is using the wrong string:
           new->name = strcache_add (p);

I'll attach a patch that fixes this.
