Hi Zack,

Sorry for the delay.

Is there an option to specify the name of the dependency output file?

(I tried to find the documentation on HP's website, but got
lost, not knowing the name of the compiler and what OS to search

This means that when depcomp runs libtool to do the compilation,
and libtool creates its object down in ./.libs/foo.o, then
we must fetch ./.libs/foo.d ?

Unless we can specify the output file, we would need a scheme
similar to the tru64 mode.

 zw> +  tmpdepfile=`echo "$object" | sed -e 's/\.o$/.d/'`
 zw> +  "$@" +Maked

I think that should be 

  if test "$libtool" = yes; then
    "$@" -Wc,+Maked
    "$@" +Maked

(so libtool doesn't take the last unrecognized argument as the
source file)

 zw> +  stat=$?
 zw> +  if test $stat -eq 0; then :
 zw> +  else
 zw> +     rm -f "$tmpdepfile"
 zw> +     exit $stat
 zw> +  fi
 zw> +  rm -f "$depfile"
 zw> +
 zw> +  # The object file name is correct already.

I doubt it's true when libtool is used: the compiler sees whatever.o on
its command line, but we want whatever.lo in the dependency file.

 zw> +  cat "$tmpdepfile" > "$depfile"
 zw> +  # Add `dependent.h:' lines.
 zw> +  sed -ne '2,${; s/^ //; s/ \\*$//; s/$/:/; p; }' "$tmpdepfile" >> 

I assume the first line (ignored) contains the object file?  Is
the leading `;' important?


 zw> "$@" -E |
 zw> -    sed -n '/^# [0-9][0-9]* "\([^"]*\)".*/ s:: \1 \\:p' |
 zw> +    sed -n -e '/^# [0-9][0-9]* "\([^"]*\)".*/ s:: \1 \\:p' \
 zw> +       -e '/^#line [0-9][0-9]* "\([^"]*\)".*/ s:: \1 \\:p' |

I'll include this bit in 1.9.6.
