Update of bug #19298 (project make):

           Triage Status:                    None => Medium Effort          


Follow-up Comment #2:

It's more than time to rework this section of the manual to document the
newer method of handling automatic prerequisite generation.

Then the question becomes, what example can we use to show the power of
automated makefile rebuilds?  I think we might need a section in the manual
discussing dynamic makefile creation options.  We can start with constructed
variable names, then move to included makefile generation, and end up with the
most complex: eval.  We'll need to think up a good set of examples to show the
various options and when they're appropriate.
