This would look reasonable change for most cases, but since -MMD is not
a standard option that all C compilers can handle, I don't think I want
to apply a change that would hardcode -MMD to CFLAGS. It should remain
possible to compile wpa_supplicant with other compilers than gcc and it
least one of the test compilers I use happens to use the same
Makefile-based build system, but the compiler doesn't like -MMD..
