Follow-up Comment #1, bug #22531 (project make):

I took a look at this.  It seems to belong to a class of bugs introduced in
3.81 by some (unintentional; at least I didn't intentionally do it) change
related to handling of directory separators (/).  In previous versions of make
I believe there was some effort to canonicalize directories by removing
trailing slashes and perhaps even leading "./" chars.  Apparently that is no
longer working the same way.

If I change your makefile to remove the trailing slashes from the variables
so the order-only prereqs don't contain trailing slashes (and add them in as
appropriate so the result is the same), then it works as expected in both 3.80
and 3.81.
