Wow, this is lame! I can't imagine why a compiler would do this. Do
SCO hackers never run `make' to rebuild a project?

I want to know if this happens because argmatch.o already exists, or
if it is because the SCO `cc' doesn't like `-c' and `-o' together.
I want to make sure we really know what is going on. Could you run a
test or two to make sure this is what is happening?
If it is we can add an `rm -f foo.o' to the build rule. I would like
to avoid that if possible though.
