The following is a bit safer:

find . -name Makefile -exec sed -i 's/groups\.1 / /' {} \;

Otherwise we end up with another change on line 225 of Makefile 
where 'groups.1.xml' becomes '.xml'.

Oddly enough, I've ended up with groups.1 being installed on my most recent 
jhalfs build.  The script seems sane enough (it has the sed in it) - we'll 
see what happens with the next run!
