  no, you don't need to 'make obj' -- the .OBJDIR make variable
  sets things up so that Makefiles can easily find out exactly which
  directory binarys are being build it, which helps to REMOVE
  the need to 'make obj'.

if you don't install the make out of sequence (and the notes don't tell
you to) then OBJDIR definitions will be missing. This will stump any
novice like me doing 0.9-current upgrade. Thus make obj is a definate win
during upgrade.
