Well, then I deduce that you are not a heavy LaTeX user.  (Am I right,
dear Watson? ;) )  The problem is that the make model (using
timestamps) is a bit too simplistic for LaTeX: due to the way
references (& friends) work, the .aux file basically depends on
itself, but only if it contains a line saying

> LaTeX Warning: Label(s) may have changed. Rerun to get cross-references right.

I guess that using a mixture of grep, some temp file and cleverness
one could overcome this, but it's simpler to use dedicated, make-like
software, like Arara (or Emacs + AUCTeX, in my case).

Well, maybe.  It seems, though, that I want properly configured
Icicles;).

Thanks anyway,
