well, rules also depend on variables they evaluate (LDFLAGS, etc.), so
you need to modularise the variable-setting and make all targets whose
rule exercises a variable also depend on the file in which that
variable's value gets set. Even that doesn't save you when I pass some
variable-override on make's command-line.
OTOH, hashing the whole command-line may be over-kill; if I change some
tool's verbosity, that shouldn't change the generated file, so shouldn't
force a rebuild.
