[Mono-list] type-reflector makefile

I *thought* I had fixed the multiple-build problem (i.e. make followed
by a make shouldn't rebuild everything when nothing has changed).  It
worked last week, anyway.

I'm guessing that I inadvertently broke it when I moved the files

I've submitted another fix to CVS.  This one should work (*crosses
fingers*).  If you still have a problem after a CVS update, let me know.
