Subject: A way to declare that one file depends on another
So there's depends_on() to specify that an action depends on another action, but no way to state that one file depends on another. For example... PL_files => { 'munge_config' => 'y2038/time64_config.h' } munge_config reads in y2038/time64_config.h.in and spits out y2038/time64_config.h. It would be nice if I could declare that relationship. files_depend => { 'y2038/time64_config.h' => ['y2038/time64_config.h.in'] } Internally this would augment up_to_date()'s checks with the additional files.
