[Users] make utils ignoring config file?

The utilities use their own makefile prescriptions for building. Quite a few of these are badly written, and contain small errors that make them not build on many systems. Many people don't build the utilities, and these errors thus go undetected for a long time. However, we do want to clean this up.

Can you open a bug report for this, and add all the configuration details and full error message etc. to it?
