Thanks for the reply.

You say "Just make it...".  What is the "it"?  (And the syntax implies
that it is I who should be providing a patch to my patch.  Correct?  If
so, could you clarify the detail, please?)

So the basic idea of the patch is correct?  But there's a detail you would
like to see reworked?

Again this suggests it is I who should be doing further work on the patch.
That's fine in principle.  But I'm somewhat unclear on the detail you wish
to be reworked.  Could you clarify that detail, please?

Is it something like:  Try to confine the patch only to "Makefile.in",
leaving "script/mkproto.sh" untouched, and passing into it only ".o" (not
".c") files?  Sounds fine by me.  (If not, then let me know what it is.)

Who should do this?  You?  Me?  Vance?  Let me know.

Best wishes.
