There is a real issue which should be dealed with before release:
"gcc -M -MF" doesn't aware of new make behaviour (second expansion) and
sometimes (e.g. for libjava files which contain $ symbols) produces
inappropriate dependencies.  The problem is that gcc should support make
without second expansion.
