I've noticed this problem. 

What do you mean with PROGRAM2 and PROGRAM3 are not defined. 
ComplexProgramTarget_2 is an imake rule and will be substituted by the
programname. If you have ComplexProgramTarget_2 still in the Makefile (not
the Imakefile) than it's more worse, since ComplexProgramTarget_2 is not

for gnumake:

I don't think this is possible. Imake is just a wrapper to cpp and afaik,
you can't shell out of cpp.

Tonight I will take a look on the Imakefiles.
