i think you mean "grep ^.PATH Makefile" and that only works in the
place that's reaching over...not the place that being reached into.
of course, you can always do this:
# cd /usr/src
# find . -name Makefile | xargs grep ^.PATH | grep cksum
to find places that reach over into cksum. kinda suboptimal. i was
suggesting that cksum would have a file called REACHOVER that would
detail which places were borrowing files. i guess you could call it
duplication of information, but it's the other way up and more useful.
