No, no, no.

Makefile is an autogenerated file, which is created and recreated from the template by the configure script.  If you're doing development
on BCC/MSVC++ or some other Windows-exclusive compiler (excluding the
Cygwin emulation environment), you should make changes both to your main
Makefile and to  That way, if you ever need to switch
platforms, you're setup to simply run './configure', recompile, and go.

Any platforms that use configure--including Cygwin--should make changes
exclusively to and then run ./config.status to have Makefile
updated.  It is erroneous to change Makefile on these platforms as editing
an autogenerated file is simply begging for trouble.
