However, the makefiles are still full of depend targets --- so someone
who hadn't read the configure docs with eagle eyes could be forgiven
for thinking that 'make depend' will do what it usually does in most
other project trees.

Perhaps in the next release the make targets should be renamed to
something other than depend.  At the very least, it'd be nice if
'make depend' at the top level would emit a helpful error message
rather than doing something obscure/wrong.
