This is an extremely unusual situation.  In what way is b.o depending on
a.cc or a.o?  Generally, .o files depend on the single .c or .cc or
whatever source file, plus some header files.

The only time a .o file will depend on more than one source file is if
there is an #include of the other source file, which is very rare.

And, the only time I can think of a .o file depending on another .o file
is if you're using readelf or objdump some other magic to translate one
into the other.
