make -C src remote_protocol.c does not work.
This is the error printout:.
[nagin at arenal libvirt]$ make -C src remote_protocol.c
make: Entering directory `/home/nagin/workspace/libvirt/src':
make: *** No rule to make target `remote_protocol.c'.  Stop.:
make: Leaving directory `/home/nagin/workspace/libvirt/src'.:
I tried it both from libvirt and libvirt/qemud.

However,the problem can be overcome by treating the make as a two step
First update remote_protocol.x and invoke moke make to generate
Next make changes to the rest of the code that reference remote_protocol.h.
If the changes to remote_protocol.x are not backward compatible,
then it is necessary to prepare for the
first step by removing the offending references and run make.
