           Summary: Uses of $(VERB) should be absorbed into tool defn
           Product: Build scripts
           Version: cvs
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Makefiles
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: brukman+bugs at uiuc.edu

It seems that uses of $(VERB) aren't really helping readability (and possibly
execution time) of Makefile rules.  Clearly $(VERB) is used before any tool, so
it would make sense instead to put the $(VERB) in the tool definition variable,
and then we will not see $(VERB) in any Makefile rule, but only in the few
places where we define LLVM tools, along with common Unix utilities.  

This will decrease proliferation of $(VERB), improve readability, and possibly
speed up compiles (which, as we all know, are dominated by link-time, but bear
with me).
