Take it out if you feel strongly about it, or replace it with
something better.

It was the only way I could find to allow parallel byte-compiling that
was compatible with portable Makefile syntax. I certainly appreciate
the speed-up that allows.

The only trouble it causes AFAIK is an obvious build failure when a
lisp file is (re)moved or renamed (which is infrequent) without a
corresponding update of Makefile.in.
