Indeed, but not often enough :-).

This was a last minute change of names.  I had previously compiled
under the old names.  The Makefile doesn't describe the dependency
between opcode.h and compile.c.  And the compile.o file I had worked,
because the only change was to the name of a macro.

It's too bad the Makefile doesn't have all the dependencies.  It seems
that it's necessary to do a make clean before checking in a change
that affects many files.
