Header dependencies are not automatically seem by make;
external tools (typically the compiler, the preprocessor
or makedepend) must deduce these dependencies and tell
make, usually through generated .mk files that are included
by your makefile.

A very god and elaborate hans-on on this topic may be found

When i modify an header file (.h) and then i compile the project, not all
sorce (.c) files that include the modified header are re-compiled by make.
I've no problems when i modify only the source .c files.

Make invocation is made with the following command:
make -k pre-build main-build

Any suggestion?
