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.
