I'm not sure where $% came from; there is no such automatic variable.  I
think you want $*, which is set to the stem of the target.

Sure, a number of them.  Try Googleing for "make-w32 archive" or

You can also find one of them linked off of the info page for this

In this case, the best way to avoid that would have been to check the
