It isn't that...

I've hit the same fault on two different [1] NetBSD build trees for two
different architectures (i386 and sparc).

I 'fixed' the one by deleting the generated C files in

However the lack of a dependancy doesn't bode well....

It seems that obj/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/ld/.depend.elf_i386 only


Whereas it needs to also contian a dependancy against the program/script
that builds it.

(adding dependencies against all the header files also works...)


[1] don't ask...
