	make obj in src/libexec/makewhatis doesn't create the symlink
to the objdir. While makewhatis is a shell script and doesn't have any
objects, it does have a manpage, and without the objdir, the manpage
ends up in the same directory as the source.
	cd into src/libexec/makewhatis and make obj.
I checked some other shell script Makefiles (true, false, shar, and
lorder), and neither define NOOBJ. They don't define NOPROG either,
