| As an aside [ using makedepend(1) ] seems redundant as

yes & no.
if you _always_ use gcc(1), then `-M' is worth considering.
but if you sometimes use some other compiler, then you may
not have the equivalent of `-M', in which case `makedepend'
is easily the best answer (assuming yer using C or C++).
