Thanks for this suggestion. "distclean" already deletes makefile.dep.

Unless I'm looking at the wrong sources or somehow mistaken, I don't think it does for libnetutil I'm afraid, especially as I actually do distclean between cross builds.

Is deleting dependencies on "clean" really expected behavior?

First look I would have cleaned the deps on a distclean too, but as explained, nsock removes it on the 'clean' target. The top level makefile does the same, so I followed the project's own example for the patch.

Either way, I think libnetutil is the odd one out in forgetting to clean this file which is something of a minor nuisance.

Kind Regards,
