Content tracking mode for make

I am Raman, a student. I am currently working with code
generation for a microcontroller. I was wondering if it is
possible to support a new mode on make which tracks
dependancy content instead of timestamps.

Somtimes, it is possible that a code generator replaces the
existing files in the code base with the same content. It might
be a good option to enable content checking before make
rebuilds the replaced file (with the same content) again.

I could certainly add this option. Could you please give me
some guidance to proceed? Am I in the right direction?

Awaiting your response,
