It wasn't a mistake.  I was told that there was a *.mk bug that was fixed
that dealt with the problem rev 1.189 was suppose to fix.  It was
based on that, that I agreed to have revision 1.189 backed out.  However,
I just ran into the problem again while trying to update a system from
March 8th:

# cd /usr/src/share/mk ; make obj ; make all install
# cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/config ; make obj ; make all install
# cd /sys/i386/conf ; config FOO
# cd ../../compile/FOO ; make depend ; make
===> 3dfx (all)
make: don't know how to make machine/bus_at386.h. Stop
*** Error code 2

Please back out this "mistake", or please fix the issue where "make
depends" isn't producing a usable .depends file.
It is stupid to have to do "make cleandepends ; make depends" in order to
get a usable .depends file.
Computers are to A-U-T-O-M-A-T-E, not cause more work for humans.
