To make dependencies between Lips files explicit in lisp/Makefile.in,
and thus causing Make to compile Lisp files in the right order.  Right
now, whenever some Lisp files change, I frequently need to "make
recompile" several times, sometimes removing stale *.elc files
manually, until it finally succeeds, because it basically compiles
them in a random order.
