Um, no, I did not supply a rule.  I supplied a *dependency*.
Rules are followed by shell scripts.  That is an important
distinction.  If there is documentation on another way to
accomplish this, I cannot find it in the 1.5d version of the docs.

Thank you.  It would probably be useful for the auto-tools
projects to at least agree on a single reference page for
a "best bets" information page.  Viz.:

1.  the three versions for certain reliability
2.  the three versions for probable reliability
3.  the versions we think are stable, but may yet bite.

Thanks, Alexandre...
