You remove *always BuildTime2.cpp ;* and change
make BuildTime2.cpp : : @buildtimecpp ;
make BuildTime2.cpp : : @buildtimecpp : <dependency>$(myfiles) ;
make BuildTime2.cpp : : @buildtimecpp : <dependency>main.cpp
echo const char* g_BuildTime = "$(time)"; >"$(<)"
exe MyExe : main.cpp second.cpp BuildTime2.cpp ;
