If text.mh (the names of the generated header files have changed)
is generated from text.m, you should import it using
`:- pragma c_import_module(text)', not
`:- pragma c_header("#include ""text.mh""")'.

`:- pragma c_import_module' gives `mmc --make' the dependency
information it needs to make sure that text.h is built before
