When I first worked on autoconfiscating the original Blender source
release, I had problems where the python scripts kept overwriting the
autotools-generated Makefile in freeze/, which is why I changed the
python scripts to create "Makefile.freeze" instead of just "Makefile".
After I changed the output filename, I then discovered how to get the
scripts to write the Makefile[.freeze] into frozen/.  I still kept the
filename since I didn't want automake/autoconf to be potentially
confused by the python-generated Makefile.  Also, the "clean" target in
freeze/Makefile works on the glob "../frozen/*.*", to avoid any
unnecessary unpleasantries with CVS/.
