Don't bother trying to clean up the Makefile -- We are soon going to be 
doing away with most of its contents, using the kernel Kconfig / 
Makefile build system instead.  This way we will have a single Makefile 
to update when adding new drivers.  A local makefile will still be left 
around to handle the build for the experimental modules in the mercurial 
tree, such as cx88-ivtv and ivtv itself.

You can expect to see this change hit v4l-dvb master most likely towards 
the end of next week, time permitting.
