What would it take to add useful dependency information to the
Makefile?  Or does it already exist?

When I was working the nested scopes, building was tedious at times
because a change to funcobject.h meant that, e.g., newmodule.c needed
to be recompiled.  The Makefiles didn't capture that information, so I
had been adding it to the individual Makefiles, e.g.

newmodule.o: newmodule.c ../Include/funcobject.h

(I think this worked.)

It would be great if the Makefile captured all the dependencies.
Could we just use makedepend?
