I don't know any way of copying the rule, short of grabbing it out of
make's database. IIRC it's something like:

%.exe: %.o
	$(LINK.o) $(LDLIBS) $(LOADLIBES) -o $@ $^

Alternatively, you could just use something like:

%.exe: %
	coff2exe %

(both typed off the top of my head; I don't have djgpp here).
