What I'm objecting to is the removal of by reference inclusion of SRC_D_MODULES into MANIFEST and instead duplicating
the whole list.  MANIFEST should use references where possible and list only what's unique to the MANIFEST directly.

Makefiles are just as important as source files.. good factoring goes a long way towards maintainability.
