grumble, grumble.  I can't apply the below any more since it conflicts
with Nick's and Andreas' patches...

Surely we should be able to craft make rules that work across platforms
and satisfy the following:

(1) (1a) PPPort.o depends on PPPort.c and ppport.h
    (1b) module[23].o depend on ppport.h
    (1c) ppport.h depends on ppport_h.PL
    (1d) PPPort.c depends on PPPort.xs
(2) no unnecessary recompiles (which means no unnecessary touching of files)
(3) the ppport.h is removed on clean
