I just had a look at that test, and it seems like a very crappy test
to me.  I had some failures with cl, but figured it was the same as
these Tru64 failures that I had seen flying past, and put it all on
the back burner.  But the test is destined to cause troubles if IIUC.

It's just dead wrong to assume that feeding -M or -xM to the compiler
(or whatever other random stuff depcomp might do) and not get an error
is the same as dependencies magically appearing.  Or do I read the
test wrong?  Please tell me that I do!

gcc needs to be required, or something, or we will suffer from FAILs
with every other odd compiler (that doesn't deserve them).
