I mean, you should not be able to type:

    make tools/uncoded_frame

and have it run when it can't actually be built successfully. Our Makefile
doesn't allow this for any other rule, e.g. 'make tools/cws2fws' will refuse to
build if zlib is missing or disabled.

My make-fu level isn't high enough to know exactly how to fix this without an ifeq,
or why it happens specifically for tools/uncoded_frame -- that's why it's an RFC.
