Pre-including a generated file

Hi. I would like to be able to include a generated file each time I run
make. I have a small script that generates some make rules. The file
should be generated *always*, and the results of the file should be
included by make.

I tried something like this:


include file

.PHONY: file

But it doesn't work. It seems that make first includes the (old) file,
then regenerate it. I tried to add a rule like Makefile: file to tell make
to remake the Makefile itself when "file" is changed but it doesn't work

This usually works with "automatic dependencies", so I guess there should
be any way to get arround, but I tried and tried and came up with nothing.

Any ideas?
