There is no way to do this with some magical make construct.

You simply have to either modify the rules in your makefiles to run this
executable, or another option is to replace your compiler with a script
that does both.

You don't give any details about your current situation and I don't know
much about Windows shells but in UNIX to do the former you could try:

    CC := my-executable && $(CC)
    CXX := my-executable && $(CXX)
