Ouch, you're right.
Prerequisite `admin/cvs.sh' is newer than target `subdirs'.
Must remake target `subdirs'.
Indeed, by 3 seconds, and even in the tarball itself:
-rw-r--r-- root/root 196 2005-06-22 15:15:53 koffice-1.4.0a/subdirs
-rw-r--r-- root/root 19142 2005-06-22 15:15:56 koffice-1.4.0a/admin/cvs=
No idea how this happened. If I re-run Makefile.cvs after removing subdirs,
I get a recent subdirs and cvs.sh remains old, as expected.
Well, this is yet another reason to make a 1.4.1 tarball soon. Planning for=
