Since you seem to know your makefile mojo, would you be willing to  
update these for the current ode and check them into svn? It seems  
like a worthwhile thing to do.

If you can't, I'll see if I can pull it off ( I'm not particularly  
good at makefiles, though, and even worse dealing with makefiles and  
autoconf )
