Fix is in CVS.

I would rather fix it properly right away than to come back to it. Will try to fix it before the end of the week.

Hm. I don't know if we can release 3.81 with this kind of regression: it's different than releasing with a bug in new behavior or with an old bug not fixed.

Another idea which would resolve this problem but not the general case (when .SECONDARYEXPANSION is enabled) would be to go back to 3.80 processing for static pattern rules when .SECONDARYEXPANSION is not defined, and replace the "%" with the stem immediately as the rule is parsed, rather than replacing it with $* and waiting until the target is built.

Attaching a minimized test case. It prints "all.foo.one all.foo.two" while should print "all.one all.foo.two".

I also checked the code and it seems that keeping stem in prerequisites is the best way to solve this. I am not sure, however, if we should do it for 3.81. There will be quite a bit of changes.

previous discussion:

make-3.80 works ok.
3.81beta4, 3.81rc1 don't work.

Sample output with attached testcase:

/tmp/m/obj$ make --version
GNU Make 3.80
/tmp/m/obj$ make -f ../src/Makefile
mkdir -p /tmp/m/obj/dir
cc -c -o /tmp/m/obj/dir/a.o /tmp/m/src/dir/a.c
cc -c -o /tmp/m/obj/dir/b.o /tmp/m/src/dir/b.c
ar cru /tmp/m/obj/my.a /tmp/m/obj/dir/a.o /tmp/m/obj/dir/b.o

fails with e.g. make from cvs:
/tmp/m/obj$ rm -rf *.a dir
/tmp/m/obj$ make --version
GNU Make 3.81rc1
/tmp/m/obj$ make -f ../src/Makefile
make: *** No rule to make target `/tmp/m/src/dir/dir/a.c', needed by
`/tmp/m/obj/dir/a.o'. Stop.
