useless, tedious re-makings when building perl
Message ID:
No matter if you changed something in the source or not, or if the
change affected only the main binary, all extensions will be relinked
over and over again, every time you run 'make'.

Running Mkbootstrap for Devel::Peek ()
chmod 644
rm -f ../../../lib/auto/Devel/Peek/
LD_RUN_PATH="" cc  -shared  -L/usr/local/lib Peek.o  -o ../../../lib/auto/Devel/Peek/      
chmod 755 ../../../lib/auto/Devel/Peek/
cp ../../../lib/auto/Devel/Peek/
chmod 644 ../../../lib/auto/Devel/Peek/

Of course is not out of date wrt. Peek.o, etc.
This affects all targets that depend on blibdirs:

blibdirs ::
        $(NOECHO) $(MKPATH) \

It seems that changing the ':' to '::' was intentional (it's in the
MM 6.21 upgrade).
What was the reason for that ?
