  Using a different extension for the processed and unprocessed files would
resolve this.  Compare, e.g. the way gcc uses ".c" to mean a C source file and
".i" to mean the same file after pre-processing.

  Googlewhacked!  You are the only person on the entire internet in the whole
of history to have used the phrase "makefile generation hooks"!   Could you
clarify what you're referring to, using the same terminology that the manual
uses to describe whatever-it-is you're talking about?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
