    Something is messed up with cus-dep

    On my GNU/Linux build cus-load contains

    (put 'killing 'custom-loads '(w32-vars))

    while on my Windows build, it contains

    (put 'killing 'custom-loads '(simple x-win))

I have some idea why it is doing this.  The idea of cus-dep.el and
cus-load.el is that if you want to look at the custom group `killing',
you want to to load all the relevant files that are not loaded anyway.
I think that on GNU/Linux it concludes you need to load `w32-vars',
while on Losedows it thinks you need to load `x-win'.

It puzzles me that it includes `simple', since that's preloaded and
should therefore be excluded.  I also don't know why `mac-win' does
not get included.

Nonetheless, it appears this is not a coding error, but a real problem
of what to do in cus-dep with files meant only for one system.

Since there are not a lot of such files, and we don't add new ones
often, I think we don't need a very elegant solution.  A simple quick
solution is to define a variable in cus-dep.el that lists these files,
and exclude them from consideration.

Does anyone see a problem with this solution and want to do something
