If you have a variable containing all the different kinds of source, why
not just declare it explicitly:

  XMS_SOURCES = foo.xms bar.xms baz.xms biz.xms

I think I have found a simpler way that avoids the processing overhead in the above substitution.
I simply have a separate pattern rule for each source file type: : %.xms /path/to/xms.mkdepend
        /path/to/xms.mkdepend $< > $@ : %.xmt /path/to/xmt.mkdepend
        /path/to/xmt.mkdepend $< > $@

Thanks very much for your help.
