The reason the makefile does this is because different platforms may
require different files to be copied/linked. For example, OS/2 may notr
have inline (I don't know if it does or not). But for example, if it
doesn't then there will be no os/emx/os-inline.c, so the os/emx/Makefile
will not copy it. If Configure does the copying/linking, then the file
would have to exist in all os abstraction directories. Also in the future
we might need additional header files for specific OSes, which can be
added burely by modifying the OS specific makefile, rather than hairing up
Configure with lots of OS specific code. 

But if it needs changing, I won't object.
