I don't understand what you mean by this. How does it make it "hard to  
add anything"? Add what to what?

It's too late, I already deleted it. Furthermore, it dates back to the  
CVS days (it hasn't been updated a single time since we switched to  
svn) and probably hasn't worked correctly in 10 years or so (if it  
ever worked really correctly, given that adding -Xd to OPT never never  
was correct). You can always get it back from the history if you want
