Strangness with compiling random.c

From: John Evans (evansj@HI-LINE.NET)

When I alter random.c, and try to make, "nothing happens". Check this out:

pangea:~/mud/src$ touch random.c
pangea:~/mud/src$ make
make ../bin/
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/spear/mud/src'
make[1]: `../bin/' is up to date.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/spear/mud/src'
pangea:~/mud/src$ grep random Makefile
random.o: random.c
        $(CC) -c $(CFLAGS) random.c
('touch random.c' is the same as editing and saving the file.)

Strange, eh?

To fix it just add random.o to the listing of files in OBJFILES in and re-run configure.

(BTW: Stock bpl 11 does this, but bpl 12 has fixed the problem.)
