I like the use of two separate commands in rules.  

Could you install this patch without removing the space after
-MF and -MT?  Doing so will break tools like distcc that parses
these flags and assume the space (the GCC manual always use it).

Here removing the spaces would cause distcc to force a local
compilation (because -MFxxx and -MTxxx are not among its list of
options that generate dependency as a side-effect, although -MF
and -MT certainly are).  I guess other tools might be hurt, and it
sounds a bit harsh to do that just for two spaces.  After all if
we did the same thing with -o many more tools would be lost too,
including some we distribute.
