	A corrupt .depend file will be reported with the wrong pathname
	prefix, apparently with ${.CURDIR} instead of ${.OBJDIR}....

		# cd /proven/work/woods/NetBSD-src/games/hack/         
		# make dependall
		make: "/proven/work/woods/NetBSD-src/games/hack/.depend" line 1361: Need an operator
		make: Fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
		make: stopped in /proven/work/woods/NetBSD-src/games/hack
		# ls -l .depend obj/.depend
		ls: .depend: No such file or directory

	make sure you're using OBJDIR builds

	corrupt a .depend file and then run 'make'



	(workaround: remove the .depend file and run "make depend")
