I don't think so. I see any problems with your suggestion.

The script could almost do the job, but a human would still need to make
the changes. However, in this case, I think we can get a script to
change everything. Here's what I think would work. First change make.mid
by hand to contain only your two suggestions. Then have the script go
through all source files and change any occurance of BIN_MAIN_INTER,
BIN_CONTRIB_CMD to BIN_INTER or BIN_CMD. Since make.mid is the only
place where these variables are defined, it should be safe to change all
other instances since they should be only references to the variable.
What do you think?

If you agree I'll write the script and run it, probably on Monday since
it is almost dinner time here.
