Do you mean having an inventory based not only on names but also on file
attributes too?

Well, I have a substantial tree, having about 20-30 libraries and executables built. It is fairly easy to eliminate libraries since they all follow the same naming convention lib*.so.*, but the executables we build do not have a naming convention.

At the same time, they are the only files:
- it is a binary ELF executables (file would return predictable output)
- and it has its execute prmission set.

It looks like I am asking for too much, but it would be cool if you could specify such a thing.

The most maintainable thing to do is separate your build from your source trees. There are a lot of advantages to doing that.

        Otherwise, just list the output files in inventory files in your tree.
