Oops. The new and improved "mkdep.c" is no longer very forgiving about
header files that do not exist, and the net_alias.c file has a few
#include's that are used for user-level debugging but do not exist in the

Fix: remove the stuff that is within the ALIAS_USER_LAND_DEBUG in
net_alias.c, redo the dependencies and go..

(alternatively you can put the comment /*nodep*/ btween the #-mark and the
"include", which forces mkdep to ignore the dependency)
