i don't quite buy the argument of "we've got a lot of per-object overhead,
so what's a little bit more".  we should be trying to minimize overhead of
generated code as much as possible.  forking a subshell to fork sed just to
munge a string that we can have make itself generate is pure overhead.

but you're appealing to avoiding hassle.  to that end, i'll point out the
current depdir logic is already in an unhealthy state: we're generating
similar logic 3 times with automake-processed conditionals depending on 3
runtime settings:
%-c% -o %OBJ% %SOURCEFLAG%`test -f '%SOURCE%' || echo '$(srcdir)/'`%SOURCE%
?!GENERIC?              %SILENT%$(am__mv) %DEPBASE%.Tpo %DEPBASE%.Po
?GENERIC??SUBDIROBJ?    %VERBOSE%depbase=`echo %OBJ% | sed 

this directly translates to overhead in the generated
@am__fastdepCC_TRUE@                $(AM_V_CC)depbase=`echo $@ | sed 
@am__fastdepCC_TRUE@                $(COMPILE) -MT $@ -MD -MP -MF $$depbase.Tpo 
-c -o $@ $< &&\
@am__fastdepCC_TRUE@                $(am__mv) $$depbase.Tpo $$depbase.Po
@AMDEP_TRUE@@am__fastdepCC_FALSE@   $(AM_V_CC)source='$<' object='$@' 
@AMDEP_TRUE@@am__fastdepCC_FALSE@   DEPDIR=$(DEPDIR) $(CCDEPMODE) $(depcomp) 
@am__fastdepCC_FALSE@               $(AM_V_CC@am__nodep@)$(COMPILE) -c -o $@ $<

switching to make variables will allow us to collapse these.  i'm fairly
confident i can at least collapse the last 5 lines ?GENERIC? into 2 lines.
