Comment (by rhaas):

 This seems to combine dependency generation and compilation of the source
 code. Is that right?

 While I am aware that this is considered the correct thing to do, with
 other codes that also do this I found that occasionally I would end up
 with corrupted dependency files (eg change in Makefile, change in compile
 options) that would invalidate some of the files in the dependency list.
 On that project the only fix is a make clean followed by a complete
 recompile, which takes a very long time. It would be nice if the cleandeps
 target still existed and if dependencies could be quickly regenerated.
