Sorry if I sounded irritated about the build system changing
and lashed out at Linux. That was not the intent. Grass is
a large system and it takes quite a while to build unattended.
If a failure occurs then it takes more of my time to figure
out what failed. Since my time is short this hand editing
of Gmakefiles is a bother. Building Grass5 for windows
used to be a clean process; now it takes much more time.
