Yes - it's a case of having to know when to run a 'make clean ; make'
instead of debugging a phantom problem.

The only thing here is that everything depends on smb.h so a simple
change here would cause everything to be recompiled which would probably
annoy people.  So really putting proper dependencies in the Makefile is
just the beginning.  We then have to remove all the unecessary

Oh yes, the Makefile dependency tracker I was looking at is part of
libtool.  (-:
