Hallo Elias, thanks for the answers. Meanwhile I checked, the error does not appear with GNU make 4.0 seems we should update our Cluster a little bit, I have to check which of our Computers are affected.
Personally I like more to tell make which files I like to have compiled instead of using an automatic search and the makefile decides which ones I like to have compiled, but maybe I am just a little bit too old fashioned.

It turns out that I had this exact problem three years ago. I even asked a question about it on StackOverflow , where a helpful user pointed out that this is a known bug in make 3.82  and suggested the solution .SECONDEXPANSION: %.o: $$(wildcard %.[fF]) $(FC) $(FFLAGS) -c $< -o $@ (splitting the rule should still also work, of course). Since this problem was fixed in later versions of make and is easy to circumvent if you are affected, I will leave my Makefiles as they are. It remains a puzzle though that I cannot now reproduce the problem with make 3.82 (neither with a make 3.81 that I found elsewhere). Maybe RedHat backported the fix? ‘make -v’ says GNU Make 3.82 Built for x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu Elias  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21193024/wildcard-in-a-pattern-rule  https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=31621 -- Elias Assmann Institute of Theoretical and Computational Physics TU Graz <https://itp.tugraz.at/> _______________________________________________ Wien mailing list Wien@zeus.theochem.tuwien.ac.at http://zeus.theochem.tuwien.ac.at/mailman/listinfo/wien SEARCH the MAILING-LIST at: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/index.html
