One risk of this change - I might have missed a dependency. After this goes in tomorrow, please be on the lookout for odd build behavior and let me know.

We have a tool that also help track this....

bash tools/scripts/whatChanged
does a great job in showing what under ./build changed.
If something should change and does not ... then we need to correct it.

    would you review:
