Browsing the gdb archives I came across this.

Ugh. This is an effect of the configury change that
I hadn't anticipated. This is going to be a major pain IMHO.
Are the powers that be really ok with saying "just don't do that (*1)" ?
(*1): Which is effectively the same as saying rm -rf *
(assuming objdir != srcdir of course) is required if
you ^c and want the next `make' to work (assuming you don't want to
go to the trouble of figuring out what state the tree is in that will
screw up a subsequent make). Ugh.
