It is used internally to support the dependency tracking mechanism.
It is almost definitely not intended as a generic mechanism to support
Makefile includes.

After all, automake already has it's own support for including
makefile fragments -- and that mechanism is already portable to
'make's that don't support any form of 'include's.
