I do occasionally get reports about this, but I've never been able to
reproduce it, even on fresh installs.  I wonder if this is a GNU
make-ism problem?  I've primarily tested on various flavi of Linux,
but OTOH, it doesn't /seem/ like I'm doing anything particularly GNU

Thanks Dan for analyzing the way it /ought/ to work (and does for me
and most people).  I'd love to understand why it's broken for some
