Well, it turns out that "make useride" also does not work on a fresh
checkout. At least, I could no longer get it to work.

see my comment in

But the point of the 'main targets' is taken, so I filed a feature 
request in the issue tracker to be able to build the LCL using just 
the Makefile.

basically, I would like something as

make lcl

to produce the LCL units.

(it can be another 'main' target name if that is needed, obviously)
