Oh I didn't think we ran mkh any longer, because the NT port can't run it
and we just have hard coded the output or something... but yeah I'm happy
eliminating this.

I'd be happy with a Makefile.tmpl for regex as well.

Oh, a script file doesn't have to start with #!/bin/sh under unix.  It
just has to not have the "magic number" of an executable and it'll be
treated as a script.  +1 on adding #!/bin/sh. 

So all of the above works for me.
