That's right. Neither the Windows nor the Mac build directories need the
subdirectories. Their gmake makefiles create them as required. That's a
distinct advantage; any configuration info (e.g. the include dependency
information in build.macos32x86/squeak.cog.spur/deps) gets generated once
and shared between the builds instead of having to run it separately for
each build (another reason why builds are faster than with autoconf/cmake).

Will do. Thanks.

Either those or https://github.com/OpenSmalltalk/opensmalltalk-
vm/blob/Cog/build.macos32x86/common/Makefile et al. The Mac ones are newer
and a little cleaner.
Also, until after Pharo 6 Release, maybe this work should be done
