Well, I also need something like `echo "$*" | sed 's/\.h$/.c/'` (not
tested), so using suffix rules seems like too much trouble. Besides,
in one directory I have two `.list' files, one of which is processed
by my parser, while the other---by `glib-genmarshal' (I chose my
suffix before I even started with GTK+ GUI.)

Then I could just make the parser read them as well. That might be
a good idea, actually, since these options are more like modes that
are absolutely necessary to be set correctly to parse anything.

I'm not sure which one comes first. They are generated on-the-fly in
parallel (i.e. fprintf's to both files are mixed.) I assume in this
case I can just do
foo.c : foo.h
foo.c foo.h : ...
if $(BUILD_THEM_FILES) foo.list foo.h foo.c; then \
touch foo.c; \
(rm -f foo.c foo.h; exit 1) \
BTW, I have just built everything in a separate directory for the
first time :) I need to sort out that parallel building stuff, but
otherwise all works perfectly. Thanks for your help.
