Failures in current CVS

The checkins on October 24 have introduced failures when running the
test suite. The 'features/patspecific_vars' tests bombs out with make
generating a signal 11 error. I'm running Linux on i586-pc-linux-gnu
under an up-to-date Debian unstable distro.

A build with debugging symbols shows that the program fails in read.c on
line 2132 in record_files() at

deps->need_2nd_expansion = second_expansion;

Argument deps is NULL, so things go boom.

Here's the GDB output:

$ gdb make tests/core
... stuff ...
#0  record_files (filenames=Variable "filenames" is not available.) at 
2132          deps->need_2nd_expansion = second_expansion;
(gdb) p deps
$1 = (struct dep *) 0x0
(gdb) bt
#0  record_files (filenames=Variable "filenames" is not available.) at

Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities
the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.

-Thomas Jefferson to James Smith, 1822
