I looked onto this a while ago.  It seems easily doable for the backend
code proper, modulo potential command-line length issues; but anything
involving shared libraries requires Makefile.shlib to be involved, which
seems painful to resolve.  Once I realized the shlib problem, I stopped
trying, but if you find some way around that it may be worthwhile.

I'm altogether ignorant on how might we use it for the headers problem,
mind.  I only tried to tackle the main executable.
