Yeah, but then Configure needs to know whether the (say) module
directories are using a generated Makefile (and hence creating a .a) or a
module-supplied makefile (which may generate a .o or a .a) when creating
the OBJS= line. At the moment it doesn't know this info until right at the
end of Configure when it (prehaps) creates Makefiles for the module
directories. Um, it can be done but will be a little bit of work. 

In the meantime here is the patch for my alternative solution via a
"last-built" file which is deleted whenever an object file is updated.
Since things are clearly broken at the moment, I suggest we commit this an
an interim fix.
