Erm, maybe its time to rewrite the modules/Makefile to use something like

all clean ::
	for i in $(SUBDIRS) ; do (cd $$i; $(MAKE) $@); done

and remove all the fake *_build and *_clean targets. I would like to use
this method in src/Makefile as well (esp. since regex is now treated just
like the other dirs). Do you think this will work on BSD make?
