See attached for example.

Apparently you can no longer have a stem and a glob in a dependency. Rule of the form:

%.concat: %/*.txt

works in Make 3.81, but not in 3.82:

user@host:~/make-regression$ make-3.81 a.concat
echo putting a/something.txt together makes a.concat
putting a/something.txt together makes a.concat

user@host:~/make-regression$ make-3.82 a.concat
make: *** No rule to make target `a.concat'. Stop.
