Patch doesn't work for me.
Use "make V=1" to see the verbose compile lines.
-e Use "make V=1" to see the verbose compile lines.
-e CC gmime-filter-reply.o

It's a shame that simple things like "echo" aren't easy to use portably.
(And yes, I know that autoconf has a bunch of tests for echo, such as
how to get the behavior of "echo -n", etc.)
