The command is not running through a shell in that case so there is
no step that expands the wildcard.  This feature is not about wildcard
expansion, but about multiple inputs to the copy.  They can be
spelled out explicitly in the command invocation, or passed through
a variable containing a list populated by file(GLOB).
