Maybe try this instead (together with the two other lines from our 
initial version), removing some of the weirdness:

PLUGFORMATS_SRCS: sh =if [ -f john.c ]; then echo *_plug.c; fi

Now the -f does not get several arguments but is still always true. And 
we use echo instead of ls. This *should* work but who knows, I recall 
some odd magic was needed to get it work - maybe there need to be two 
wildcards for some reason? I have no Solaris here, but just looking at 
the syntax one would think these alternative lines should work just as well:

PLUGFORMATS_SRCS: sh =if true; then echo *_plug.c; fi
PLUGFORMATS_SRCS: sh =echo *_plug.c
