   Even without that, over the last 3 years with about 100 engineers busily 
   working on a code base similar to netbsd, the need to make clean in 
   a directory due to a broken .depend (due to a renamed/removed header) 
   is quite rare.
   I.e autodep has proven to be a net win.

i'd buy that.  there have been several recent times when a cleandir
has been necessary... avoiding it will be nice.

i've been trying to figure out exactly when one would lose with this
method and i've not come up with anything yet.. it may be using the
wrong dependancies, but i can't see it doing anything actually _wrong_
because of this.
