> Which is platform with broken VPATH support and/or make ?

Well, my commit is maybe useless...

I tried to have two builds at the same time:

- debug in Python source code (e.g. ~/python)
- release in a subdirectory in the Python source code (e.g. ~/python/release)

If I compile in debug mode before building in release mode, the build of the release mode fails because make finds some objects in source tree (and so think that it doesn't need to build them).

I tried to avoid completly VPATH to support this use case, but I'm not sure that it is possible (at least, it doesn't work: it fails to build pgen in the release).
