Follow-up Comment #1:

The same way you'd check for a word in any other list of words, in GNU make:

sources = foo.c bar.c

ifeq (,$(filter clean,$(MAKECMDGOALS)))
include $(sources:.c=.d)

will only include the files if "clean" doesn't appear anywhere in

However, I'm not sure that this is the correct behavior.  Suppose someone used
"make clean all"; now none of the dependency files will be included for the
"all" target.

I'll leave this open as a Doc bug to determine whether the example needs to be
