Unfortunately that doesn't help. Digging a little deeper I found that "make dep"
doesn't include dependencies on offset.h because "find -name \*.h" doesn't find
it when you start with a fresh source tree, or after a "make clean".

The fix is quite obvious: create an empty offset.h during make archdep.

I have a patch here which addresses that but I would like to make some more 
tests
before I commit it.
