Thanks!

That means the 'make' tool is already half-done :)
This, together with a timestamping that takes into

SGI machines that have to stay in 1998 for some strange reason :)

REXML and GraphR.  Because GraphR have a method which can be used as
topological sorting `strongly_connected_components' which is
implemented by me :-)
