Implicit rule chain problem

The attached very simple makefile does not work properly. Chaining of
implicit rules does not work. 'a.ccc' will be not created from 'a.aaa'
only if I explicitly 'make' it through 'a.bbb'.

See the command sequense below:

address@hidden:~/b2000/core(560)>cat Makefile
%.bbb :: %.aaa
        cp $< $@
%.ccc :: %.bbb
        cp $< $@
address@hidden:~/b2000/core(561)>rm a.*
address@hidden:~/b2000/core(562)>touch a.aaa
address@hidden:~/b2000/core(563)>make -f Makefile a.ccc
make: *** No rule to make target `a.ccc'.  Stop.
address@hidden:~/b2000/core(564)>make -f Makefile a.bbb
cp a.aaa a.bbb
address@hidden:~/b2000/core(565)>make -f Makefile a.ccc
cp a.bbb a.ccc
address@hidden:~/b2000/core(566)>make -f Makefile a.ccc
make: `a.ccc' is up to date.


My make version:

address@hidden:~/b2000/core(559)>make --version
