That sounds like a bug in our make. It explicitly documents $$ to be expanded
to a single `$', and this is the right hand side of a dependency rule, not
a variable name (where the resulting $ would lead to another expansion).

Also no shell should be involved for this RHS, so no $ expansion at
that level either. Sounds like something is broken to me.
