No, it is not strange: indeed the MELT *branch* has a file contrib/MELT-Plugin-Makefile
which is used for the *MELT* plugin (but is useless for the MELT *branch*, which has its
own gcc/

But the MELT plugin is not useful for the MELT branch. When you build a gcc-melt from the
MELT branch, there is no file involved, the melt-runtime.o is statically linked
inside cc1 (and cc1plus, etc etc...) and the MELT runtime is automagically started as a
pseudo-plugin without any dlopen-ing. the MELT initialization phase is indeed dlopen-ing
MELT modules (as does the plugin for a regular GCC), because toplev.c of the MELT
branch calls melt_initialize() and melt_finalize().

So, when building the MELT *branch* (which few people do), you don't need or use

When I extract the MELT plugin from the MELT branch (e.g. for MELT plugin releases) with
the procedure in the
MELT-Plugin-Makefile is becoming the Makefile for the extracted plugin. But the MELT
branch don't need it, so it sits in rightly contrib/MELT-Plugin-Makefile

Corrected and commited svn rev 186044.
