Why do I do this?  Because, if you remove a file from your tree, an

This has been solved long ago. Check the awesome advanced dependency
generation article by Paul.



The issue you raise (as well as others) is discussed, hopefully
clearly, in this article [*].


Thanks for sharing that great article!

I'll definitely have to have a look at many or all of the articles in that website!

I've already applied some of the improvements there, reducing no-op make times to 0.7 s in single-process and 0.35 with 'make -j'. I'll keep adding the other improvements too.
