One file in several modules?

The project for which I'm the release engineer has code broken into several
CVS modules, based on functionality. This works fine, but there is one
difficulty. Each module contains a Makefile.include file which contains
various rule & variable definitions that are used by most of the other

We want to keep each module self-contained so you can just check it out and
work on it without having to check out other modules as well. But I also
want to keep the Makefile.include files in synch. 

Currently, we have a separate copy in each module, and if I want to make a
change I have to make the change in every copy (in 25+ modules). Needless to
say, this is more work than I'd like for it to be.

Is there any way to have one file be in several modules? Or is there a
better way to handle this issue?

  Thanks for any help you can give,

    Keith Hearn
