Ok, so how does one go about developing this sort of thing for Automake?  I'm 
certainly interested -- having time to do the work is always the issue, right?

I've found a number of tools which claim to do dependency tracking:

TCBuild (precursor to 

But what would be the best strategy for Automake?  I've seen discussion of this 

In short, I'm asking for advice.  If I want the best chances of getting this 
feature (include as well as module dependency tracking in Fortran 77/90) into 
Automake, what's the suggested way to implement it?
