I found a solution to this but it required effort at the shell level in the actions block using sed to translate $(>) to the desired filename. Is there any other way?
Maybe it's not such a dumb question after all.

The command sequence would be something like:
rm -f ../../foo/bar.L
How do I get "../../foo/bar.tal" in the compile rule for .tal files? I.e.,
rule compile.ptal ( targets * : sources * : properties * )
# How to get actual path of $(sources) ????
