I was thinking about fixing this some time ago but apparently to do
it right is going to be messy. As we know make gives an error message 
with a file name and a line number if makefile is missing and later, if 
it cannot be built, make just says "unable to build...". Now if we are 
to postpone the first message until rebuild time then we'll need to store 
this file:line information somewhere. And that's where things get messy.

My "meantime solution" is to change include to -include once things
get stable.
