Follow-up Comment #4, bug #18641 (project make):

The method for auto-generating dependencies described in the GNU make manual
is not the state-of-the-art method.  You should check my website
http://make.paulandlesley.org and look at the advanced auto-dependency
generation description there.  This process was created fro automake by Tom
Tromey and it's much superior to the process in the GNU make manual.  And, it
doesn't suffer from this issue of invalid warnings.

The solution to the problem is just as described in bug #102; the message
about makefiles not being rebuildable would be deferred until after the
makefile has tried to be created and only printed if it couldn't be.  I don't
see any issue with backward compatibility in this.

I took a very quick look at the SF page but there wasn't much there: no
homepage, no docs that I could find, etc.  If you want to discuss it,
probably the address@hidden mailing list is the best place.  Cheers!
