I did not say that it must be a stand-alone executable. I said that it
must not depend on the code generator (whether it's inside or outside
the compiler is irrelevant to that point). And the reason I said that
is because Hans-Peter's wants to move it inside the compiler so that
making ppudump depend on the code generator would no longer break the
The basic problem is that his rewrite made ppudump dependent on the
code generator, not that ppudump's independence of the code generator
is enforced by the build system.
