I'm still catching up after being away from mail for most of last week.

It's more flexible to use "dg-require-effective-target fork" than
dg-require-fork, since then the effective-target keyword "fork" can be
used in a selector expression with other effective-target keywords or
target triplets.  Until someone needs that capability, though, it's
fine.
