Yep that's what I've found.  Also by using a wrapper script to do builds
you can easily deal with the depend failures too.  Eg. 'make > $log'
if it fails search $log for the first line that says where make failed,
then '(cd failed/dir && make clean)' and start again.  If you find you
died in the same place again - give up.
