[rt-devel] request for Makefile feature

With the upgrade from 2.0.1 to 2.0.2, a new dependency was added.  I
personally consider this out of the norm given the minor release
number change, and a bit surprising.  Not that it is a big deal,

I think that the "make upgrade" target might do well to run testdeps
-quiet, and fail if dependencies are not satisfied.  Something like

upgrade: checkdeps dirs config-replace upgrade-noclobber

	$(PERL) ./tools/testdeps -quiet $(DB_TYPE)

should do nicely to prevent us from running into problems during an
upgrade which may introduce new dependencies unexpectedly.
