Well, it would be better if you reordered your files and directories in
a way so that they can be totally ordered, and no targets from makefiles
early in the list depend upon targets later in the list.  It looks like
it will be possible in your case, if you move and its
sources to a separate directory and arrange for that to be visited
before the other directories.  Alternatively, you can think about
nonrecursive makefile structure; see here for details:
