The reason mkdep.sh exists is so that we can have a more complex dependency
scanning mechanism in place. e.g. use GCC when available, select some Perl
script on other platforms, use a platform-specific mechanism, etc

Loading all that into the Makefile gets a bit tougher to do.

But Victor's patch to use regular "cc" was probably wrong. As Jeff points
out, only gcc responds to -MM and "does the right thing"
