I just caused a build regression in libvirt because of my
misunderstanding about dependencies.

Right now, either you use foo_DEPENDENCIES and have to list everything
yourself, or you omit it, and automake does a good job.  But what about
the case where you want automake to do its automatic dependencies, and
then you add one more file?  It seems like it would be nice to support
foo_DEPENDENCIES += other_file, without requiring that foo_DEPENDENCIES=
previously occur in the file.
