Yes, in general.  There are some exceptions to this rule.

Or manual specification of the interdependencies.

Please be more specific.  For example, I can write

bin_PROGRAMS = foo
foo_DEPENDENCIES = bla bar
$(foo_DEPENDENCIES): blo

and that will work.  Be sure to read
  info Automake "Multiple Outputs"
of a recent(!) Automake version, though.

If this scheme is not applicable to your problem, you should be more
specific in which primaries you use.
