For example, SCRIPTS and FILES stuff in bsd.prog.mk suffers from this problem, and it can't be easily solved because we "abuse" the dependencies to get the correct source paths. I haven't (yet) found a way to do it "the other way".

I answered this question a few zillion times. :-) Cheers, -- Ruslan Ermilov Sysadmin and DBA, [EMAIL PROTECTED] Sunbay Software AG, [EMAIL PROTECTED] FreeBSD committer, +380.652.512.251 Simferopol, Ukraine http://www.FreeBSD.org The Power To Serve http://www.oracle.com Enabling The Information Age
