I wasn't able to get a clean build with *any* invocation of make.  I
ended up trashing the whole csh directory, and running sup with '-o' to
check all files.  Works now.  My sparc never had this problem, only
the i386.  I haven't tracked -current continuously on the sparc, only
the last month or so.  So whatever "stale" files there were, make didn't
have a clue on how to remove them.
