[Mesa-dev] [PATCH] mesa: make makedepend an hard requirement

Currently makedepend is used by the Mesa Makefile-based build system,
but not required.
Unfortunately, not having it makes dependency resolution non-existent,
which is a source of subtle bugs, and is a rarely tested
configuration, since all Mesa developers likely have it installed.
Furthermore some idioms require dependency resolution to work at all,
such as making headers depend on generated files.
