Here is what I think is going on.  I think the code in depend.m4 can
be run even when dependency tracking is irrelevant.  On the other
hand, I think an automake-generated will only actually
invoke or require depcomp when it is really possible for it to be used
at build time.  That is why I think the logic controlling the
invocation of depcomp should also control when depcomp is required.

Furthermore I think this is what is implemented.

If there is a case I've missed I am willing to address it.  But I
don't see one right now.  Do you have a concrete bug produced by the
current code?
