Re: Patch: automatic dependencies for gcc

Well, this looks really bad.  I think this is a GNU make bug:

https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?3330
https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=15919

Our circumstances aren't identical to what is in those reports, but
the symptoms are the same.  This is fixed in cvs, but that won't do us
any good until there is a make release and then time for that release
to get out to everybody.

I am not sure what to do.  I tried a few attempts to work around the
bug, but I couldn't make it work.  I'm out of ideas for fixes.

I'll prepare a patch to revert this change.  Let me know what you think.

Tom
