There is a dependency for relinking dialog if the library changes:

te at gauss:/build/X/utils/dialog> make
make: Für das Ziel »default« ist nichts zu tun.

te at gauss:/build/X/utils/dialog> touch ../../libs/ncurses/lib/libncurses.a 

te at gauss:/build/X/utils/dialog> make
gcc  dialog.o checklist.o inputbox.o menubox.o msgbox.o textbox.o yesno.o radiolist.o gauge.o rc.o strcasecmp.o -o dialog ../../libs/ncurses/lib/libncurses.a

Beyond this, I don't want to add dependencies (e.g. to header files or
other internals of the library).
