That didn't seem to work.  But what did seem to work was commenting out
the line which was reported as erroneous to begin with:

	$(static_sources): $(BUILT_SOURCES)

It should be static_SOURCES anyhow, no?  I tried correcting it as such,
but things seemed to go into an infinite loop when doing make install.

It appears as though I can use gtk-1.1.14 under Irix 6.3 now.  Yeehaw!
