I can see it in 9.1 but not in 9.0, but I haven't had the time to
pinpoint the exact change.

Although it's a bit odd, it's not really a problem, I think.  If you
want to rebuild analyze.o, you should write "make analyze.o".  If you
want to rebuild postgres, run make in src/backend, and analyze.o (or
whatever) will be rebuilt.
