I'd guess cross-compile support would have fixed this one, en-passant.
Perhaps not though.
I'm with CGD on this one: the Makefiles should work without requiring
a `make depend' On slow machines, its a real win to fix minor localized
glitches and restart a make without rerunning the depend step.
Was there a consensus to make this change, or did someone
just do it by fiat?
