I think you're right, but don't see a very simple way to make that
work, especially given the surprising number of places
that is used.

However, the following one-line patch does work; it
simply creates enough of a Makefile to silence make's
warnings.  Needs testing under -CURRENT, but I'm
pretty confident it will work there as well.

If someone could test this under -CURRENT and commit
it, those of us doing 4.x->CURRENT cross-builds would
greatly appreciate it.
