Re: preprocessor/6521: -MG creates dependency with wrong path

Ok.. But why?   Beyond it's existence, it doesn't make any sense to

The only sensible patch I can think of is to remove this odd
functionality entirely.

The below patch unifies handling for system and non-system include
files and removes the special case.  It only affects -MG, and brings
it in line with the documentation:

      -MG When used with -M or -MM, -MG says to treat missing
           header files as generated files and assume they live
           in the same directory as the source file.  It sup­
           presses preprocessed output, as a missing header file
           is ordinarily an error.

The patch is against the 20020506 snapshot.
