Didn't see any further complaints, so I pushed it.

This saves 30MB on disc (just 4.4% of the working tree size) for my
compile of swrast,i915,i965, but as a result reduced my build time for
"touch src/mesa/main/context.c; make" by 13.8% +/- 3.8% (n=5).  I don't
even care about distros, I want shorter build times for myself :)
