Hi Rich,

It's used only in the "make syntax-check" rules in Makefile.maint.

Yes, it's similar.
Unfortunately, using "hg manifest" (which this script did use
up until about a year ago) is problematic, since its output
format changed at some point between 0.9.2 and 0.9.5.

But then, I'm hardly a mercurial expert.  If someone can tell me of a
better way to make hg report just the names of version controlled files
in a given directory, portably, I'll be happy to adapt.
