Whatever bmake is about to do, ./f and f are the same file and
should thus be treated likewise, of course, of course.
I've started being explicit via ./ for i think the UnixWare port,
and i like it.  In NetBSD 7.0 RC3 i have to use this syntax for
e.g. ldd(1), a plain "ldd s-nail" didn't work.  This surprised me
this noon, i have never consciously realized such behaviour on BSD.
While complaining, pkgin DB update didn't work with 128MB RAM, and
the 7.0RC3 pkg path didn't exist.  I've used 6.1, but libelf has
been bumped... seems to work though.
I've changed my makefile generation script again.
