This seems to more or less work with the make implementations of Solaris 10, AIX 4.3.3, FreeBSD 6, and of course GNU. More or less meaning: the
proprietary make implementations will keep rerunning autotools and
config.status for a while, but eventually they will settle on something.

Are we actually any better off than we were before I removed stamp- vcl?

I don't know.  Before you removed stamp-vcl, building would not work
without GNU make at all.


If this puts us back where we were to start with, then it would be better to revert the stamp-vcl removal patch if we can't find a better way to have
changes to picked up by make...

Feel free to work on this. My allocated time for this particular issue is about expired; I can post updates to README* though, depending on the
outcome of this.

Repeating the above question: OK to apply?  If not, then ok to revert
the 2007-03-29, 2007-03-26 changes?

Certainly. In light of our new found ability to build without GNU make, then
applying seems better by far.  Please go ahead.

        * (clean-ltmain-sh): Removed.
        (libtool, $(srcdir)/$(m4dir)/ltversion.m4)
        ($(srcdir)/$(auxdir)/ Updated to not depend on any
        phony rules.  Test `$?' for prerequisites that should always
        cause us to update the target.  Fixes rebuilding rules, at the
        cost of sometimes updating too much with non-GNU make.
