It doesn't build because of older changes.  I added to my todo to fix
that one of these days, it simply shouldn't test for djecho for v1.x.
djecho is only required for building Leim, so we should not fail the
whole build if djecho is absent.

As for your change with buildobj.lst, that line in the Makefile will
work with the shell's built-in ECHO commad.  Thus no need to edit
Makefile.in at that point.

It _is_ unsupported, since I didn't build with v1.x for a long time.

I don't want to drop v1.x entirely as long as I don't know for sure
that it cannot be built.

AFAIK, the v1 version should build.  I'm not aware of any problems
that would prevent that, except for the djecho gork.
