WHOA! STOP!

I can accept the argument that GNU make has features which are
non-portable, and we should be portable to generic Unix make.

But do *NOT* call an extremely useful feature stupid!!!

This could have been very usefully used in the Subversion build system.
Instead, we have to put up with copying files from srcdir to objdir, in
a VPATH setup.
