Only if you use manual 'make depend' - which I haven't done for about 10
years.  So in my build the problem fixes itself automatically, once it
gets past this issue.

With this patch, the warning is sufficiently verbose as to call
attention to the need to re-run 'make depend' if that's the model you
are using.

That wouldn't make my 1000+ developers very happy.
