I have built my Makefile system based on the ideas presented
in Peter Miller's paper:

I'm pleased to have gotten this far :)

I read your page.  I am now (finally) building my dependencies
as described under 'Basic Auto-Dependencies', so that much of
the problem I have solved.  From your page, however, I now
