recent merge of src/engine/guid/ breaks 'make etags'?

I don't have such a directory in my source tree.  How did you cvs update?  Did
you use:

  cvs update -Pd

If not, make sure you use -P to prune empty directories.  It's especially
important to use -P when you use -d to pull down new directories.


Quoting Chris Shoemaker <c.shoemaker at>:

> On the g2 branch, 'make etags' triggers an implicit rule match:
> cc     src/engine/guid.c   -o src/engine/guid
> which fails of course.
> I don't really understand the implicit rules well enough to know why,
> but 'make -r etags' does work.
