For now.  It won't be needed only on "make release" in the future, and there
*should be* no harm enabling it now for simplicity (of both src/Makefile and
the distrib Makefiles), provided the few break spots are identified and
fixed (see next paragraph).

I can't guarantee Right Now that it all works; it worked on one arch but
broke on another.  However, we need to move further forward, and I am about
to check that there is no similar breakage in distrib on other ports.

In short, "this will be fixed in distrib/, not src/Makefile", and yes, I'm
fixing the durned things.  I already did for sparc, which was reported; it
was at that point that I noted a need to check the other ports for same.
