Makefile.rules: Don't rely on the shell to perform wildcard expansion

Authored by majnemer on Jul 30 2014, 3:31 PM.



It is possible to use make on Windows without using a Unix-like shell.
However, our makefile assumes that the shell is capable of glob
behavior. Instead of hoping the shell will expand the wildcard, do it
upfront in the makefile itself.

I fixed up a few more instances of shell-based globbing. Some of these are
MacOSX only, and this only really matters on Windows, but I figured it's
best to just be consistent and adopt a policy of "always use $(wildcard)
for globbing.
