Thanks for your answers.  It seems automake does handle this
automattically, however we have a situation where the header files are
in a didfferent directory tree then the shource code.  For that
dependency tracking is not working.  Unless my INCLUDES=   macro in my is incorrect, im not sure how to do this, if possibe

Besides the answers already given: maybe you are looking for something
that helps you write a file for Autoconf, to get a list of
headers to scan for?  Well, then autoscan (which is part of the Autoconf
package) may be the right thing for you.

But from your asking I'm not sure whether what you want is rather the
automatic dependency tracking (which is already part of Automake, as
Marc wrote).  It should work out-of-the box for a lot of compilers (the
cheap tracking methods are enabled if they are found, the not-so- cheap
ones are also enabled if you pass --enable-dependency-tracking to
