B20.1: make dependencies broken

I've found the following problem with make on B20.1.
Try the following makefile:




        # making $@ due to $?
        cp $? $@

now touch f1.bat f2.bat

make always reports:
make: Nothing to be done for `All'.

Removing the .bat extension on f1/f2 fixes the problem.
Removing the second file from NTTOOLS fixes the problem.

This all worked fine on B17.

I'm using NT4 SP5

I've tried searching the archives for this problem, but can't find anything
