I don't believe you.  Probably you mean this:

  ${MOD_CPP}: address@hidden

(note the double-$).

GNU make does not support this syntax ($$@ etc. in the prerequisites
list).  See the GNU make manual, section "Incompatibilities and Missing

As suggested there, you can rewrite this rule using static pattern
rules, like this:

  $(MOD_CPP): $(MODULE_DIR)/%.o : %.cpp
            @echo "..."

This will work with GNU make, and with clearmake -C gnu.
