What do you mean by "algebra-defined replacements". Where are
these replacements defined? How are they different than the
"optimizations" contained in the autoload files?

What do you mean by "expose". Why does this cause interpsys to
be re-built? That is necessary if code is going to be generated
based on new optimizations isn't it?

But it could have an impact on overall performance, right?

In src/interp/Makefile.pamphlet you wrote:

" is a marker file used to force a rebuild of
interpsys if the database is rebuilt (src/algebra/Makefile)."

But the marker file actually used in src/algebra/Makefile was
actually `dbcomplete' - that is, at least until I eliminated the
use of the marker file altogether and replaced it with a wild
card list of the `*.NRLIB/code.o' dependencies. So I don't know
if this ever worked quite in the manner expected.

We have the stanzas:

${SAVESYS}:     ${DEPSYS} ${OBJS} ${OUT}/util.${O} ${OUT}/nocompil.${LISP} \
                ${OUT}/sys-pkg.${LISP} \
                ${OUTINTERP} ${OCOBJS} ${OPOBJS} ${BROBJS} ${OUT}/obey.${O}
                ${OUT}/ ${INOBJS} ${ASCOMP} ${ASAUTO} \
                ${NAGBROBJS} ${TRANOBJS} \
                ${LOADSYS} \
                ${MNT}/${SYS}/algebra/exposed.${O} \
                ${SRC}/doc/msgs/s2-us.msgs \

        @ echo 617 the database was updated...remaking interpsys
        @ touch ${OUT}/


Still after reading the interp and algebra Makefiles again,
I do not see why interpsys is being rebuilt after I delete
all the *.NRLIB's and repeat the 'make'. I am still missing
something somewhere. Is there some "missing link" that still
connects the algebra/Makefile back to the inter/Makefile?
