I like your solution.  It appears to be very easy to use.

I am wondering if it would be better to specify this within
the environment.  Maybe someone uses two different C compilers
for different parts of the build.

How about SourceSignature?

    SourceSignature '*' => qw(content);

would give current behavior, while

    SourceSignature '*' => qw(consign content);

would be the only other useful option, I would imagine.
