This bug seems to be corrupted; it's not showing up in my lists anywhere. Maybe because of the "Invalid User ID" stuff in the "Submitted By" field? I do have some info about this so I'll try to re-attach the tar file. Note that the tar file I have doesn't match, as far as I can tell, my comment #1 in any way... so I'm confused.

Well, your makefile is not correct. Your .d file says:

../foo.c: /.../foo.h

That's not right. You don't want to rebuild foo.c if foo.h changes: foo.c is a source file. You want to rebuild foo.o if foo.h changes; you want the .d file to contain:

../foo.o: /.../foo.h

instead. If I change your rule for constructing the .d file to this:

%.d: %.c foo.h
echo $*.o ": " `pwd`/foo.h > $@

Then it seems to work correctly.
