I didn't bother to measure it, but I felt like it is a noticeable
difference in some of my use cases (because I sometimes noticed that
the make was stopped while linking temacs.in, and because it is also
often stopped while linking temacs).

It all depends on your beliefs, not on technical issues, I think.

The fingerprint is not guaranteed foolproof when computed from the *.o
files and is not guaranteed foolproof when made from the temacs.in
file either. 

Isn't it? The two approaches are not equally robust. The temacs.in approach is as close as you're going to get to foolproof and future proof. Can you point out an instance, exempting hash collision, in which it fails?
