Errr, what's the rush now to get this fixed? It's something that has
been there like forever, the bug report proposes adding a new field
which personally I don't like taking lightly.
I've been pondering on what's the cleanest way to fix it for some time,
and I tend to agree with Steve about using the make options to test
for the existence of the targets. But as others have pointed out it's
not clear why that change was reverted at the time.
