Howdy all!

I am using automake to build my library, and I have a slew of test

# These programs are all built for make check in this directory.
check_PROGRAMS = tst_h_files tst_h_atts tst_h_vars tst_h_grps           \
tst_h_compounds tst_h_wrt_cmp tst_h_rd_cmp tst_h_vl tst_h_opaques       \

tst_converts tst_converts2 tst_grps tst_compounds tst_vl tst_opaques    \
tst_strings tst_interops

$(check_PROGRAMS) : ../nc_tests.h

These tests programs all depend on a common header file, which is in a
parent directory ../nc_tests.h

(It's in a parent directory because it's used by other test programs,
in other directories.)

Currently this dependency is not tracked. I can change the nc_test.h
file, then do a make check in the directory with all these tests, and
none of them will be rebuilt.

I believe that the way to add these dependencies is like this:

tst_h_files_DEPENDENCIES = ../nc_test.h
tst_h_atts_DEPENDENCIES = ../nc_test.h


But is there a way of telling automake that *all* the test programs are
dependent on ../nc_test.h?

Would if be different if I used the SOURCES primary? Like this:

tst_h_files_SOURCES tst_h_files.c ../nc_test.h
tst_h_atts_SOURCES tst_h_atts.c ../nc_test.h


Any suggestions would be welcome!
