James correct me if I'm wrong, but the build model does not generate
the build dependencies does it? I thought that came from the gcc
compiler itself. At least it did a long time ago. It's the build
dependencies that I worry about and what would lead to most build
quality issues. If I change a header file, I want a guarantee that all
the source files that read that header file get rebuilt.
