 Following the recent PMC reorganization, lib/Parrot/ is now in
 the list of 'fluid' generated files -- ie autogenerated files that are
 produced during the build & removed on 'make clean'. However, nothing
 in the Makefile seems to rebuild this file, so doing:

 make clean

 leaves you without a copy (and means that everything in t/op & t/pmc
 promptly fails, as can't run).

 A simple fix would be to revert to having lib/Parrot/ as a 'sticky'
 file (ie one built by Configure and only removed by 'make realclean'),
 but I'm reluctant to include a patch as I'm not sure why this change was
 made in the first place. Can anyone shed any light?
