    This reduces the debug output even further (and size of debug output is
    strongly correlated with time taken to do a null build):

    -rw-r--r-- 1 willy willy 65582214 2005-02-07 21:13 vanilla.debug
    -rw-r--r-- 1 willy willy 51413770 2005-02-07 22:17 nosuffixes.debug
    -rw-r--r-- 1 willy willy 37245484 2005-02-08 09:56 maxperf.debug

    Seems like it gets rid of the RCS and SCCS rules -- certainly a big
    improvement, and I'm not sure anyone really uses those rules. Can we
    perhaps uncomment this line at the beginning of 2.6.12 and see if anyone
    complains? This should reduce make overhead by 30-40% which is really
    worth doing.

    "Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
    the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
    conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
    to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
    himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
    he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
