Aha!  see-no-evil... :)

No, I am a completely anti- see-no-evil type person.  I'd rather see it.   The 
problem is of course, as you might have guessed it, is that I have a gazillion 
of links, not one, and in some situations the makefiles have -L flag enabled.  
So you see where I am going with this....

At this point the best solution seems to be , put a comment in the makefile and 
in the manual, that "if you change the name of the target of the link", you 
must rebuild by hand.  In other words, drop "MAKEFILE" from the prerequisites.  
People will look at this and will say "Mark I thought you can handle this".  

Yes some people say links are a wart, I am not a guru enough to judge such 
things, I am just a larval-stage wannabe...


from: $(MAKEFILE)
           ln -sf to $@ >/dev/null 2>&1
