*Issue suggested by Simon* In Unikraft - whenever compiler flags are changed due to an addition of a library or something else according to the build rules, the make command doesn't force recompilation of those files affected by the flag change unless the files are altered too. The only way out is to "make clean" and "make" again all the files which can be redundantly time-consuming.
*Solution*One way is to create flag files for objects and add those as their dependency in the Makefile. Apart from this, I'm wondering if rules are passed on to the Makefile and changes are depicted in the Makefile itself, can we add Makefile as the dependency of objects to solve this issue? Thank you.
