Ah, sorry, the docs are out of date on that point. The docs in the
darcs version have already been updated so it'll be fixed in the
upcomming release.

The makefile thing was always only GHC specific, it relied on external
make include files and it only worked for libraries. Once GHC did not
need it anymore I removed the (mis)feature.
