bug #60077 provides a patch that adds $(@<) as the first target and $(@^) as the list, along with D and F versions.

$? is of course already taken (for the update-triggering prerequisites).

But I would also find it very useful to have an automatic variable for all the targets in the group.

How about $% (archive member name) then? The documentation says it's empty if the target is not an archive member. So we could add another case here: if the target is part of a group, the full name of the group.

Or how about another ASCII special character like $&?

It would be handy to have an automatic variable to show all targets on a grouped target rule...

    a b &:
        @echo building $?

which would output:  'building a b'...
