   What I did with the same sort of problem with Sun's CC was kind of
a quick punt. I added to my a good old fashion `depend' target...

# For platforms where automake dependency generation doesn't work
depend: $(libhippoplot_la_SOURCES)
        $(top_srcdir)/config/makedepend $(DEFS) $(INCLUDES) $(CPPFLAGS) $?

where the `makedepend' script drives gcc to create the dependencies
and modify the automake/autoconf generated Makefiles.  Thus I could
use Sun's CC as far as automake was concerned, but manually generate
dependencies by typing ``make depend''.

   The `makedepend' script I copied from some Open Source project some
ten years ago, and it got it from BSD development in the late 80's.
Perhaps there is a better way, but this quick hack worked for me.


   Interesting that gcc folk figured out that having the compiler help
you generate dependencies was a useful feature over 10 years ago,
while the expensive compilers you buy from vendors haven't yet.
