Makefile generator?  Is this something that goes thru your *.c files  and 
looks for
#include "head.h" 
and makes up a dependency of that c file on head.h?
While I'd love a utility that checks and verifies my existing Makefile for  
all the required dependencies, I think anyone who needs to generate a Makefile  
*after* designing his project and writing the C files, is engaging in sloppy  
But then, if I were stuck with maintaining X, I might take all the  
questionable help I could get :-)  --Mike K.
