The other followup provides one way.
Another way is to put this define into config.h.

`make' doesn't provide a way to track command-line dependencies.  We
could fake it in automake, but I suspect any implementation would be
slow and error-prone.  Unfortunately to some degree automake is
limited by `make'; we just have to live with it.
