In that case I will not bring this up any more after this email.

I note that while the patches are extensive they are merely the addition of 
one ECHO line to each rule.

For those who are interested, I attach the patch here (hoping it works this 
time) for the completed output cleanup.  I ran

diff -urN wine-20050111 > make_patches

where wine-20050111/ is the directory with the current wine sources 
and is the patched directory

All the changes are to the Make*.in files.

Closing off my input now.
