I think you should look at Audited Objects
( and in particular at its
dependency generation feature
This does automatic discovery of all dependency information without
modification of the Makefile. Usage is basically "ao -MD make ...".


- I can't call this a best practice because AO is very new and not
much used yet.
- Given its newness there may be a few rough edges, and the interface
may change a bit though probably not this particular aspect.
- I'm the author, so consider my opinions with that in mind.
