No (well maybe it affects the order in which stuff gets compiled or

When you type "make" after changing, is "Makefile" getting
regenerated (via "")?  That _should_ happen (automake inserts
rules to do so).  If not, you can at least type "autoreconf" to manually
regenerate Makefile and make sure its contents are OK (and then figure
out why Makefile isn't getting regenerated).

I'm not really sure what's happening -- this kind of thing normally just
works without much attention (you shouldn't normally ever have to pay
attention to Makefile or, just edit
