Follow-up Comment #1:

This isn't a bug in GNU make, and the contents of and descriptions on
non-GNU/FSF websites are not part of GNU make and aren't subject to bug
reports in Savannah.

The behavior you're seeing is correct, since the auto-generated dependency
files contain hardcoded pathnames, they don't use VPATH for lookup.

If you wanted to you could probably remove all paths from the generated
dependency files, whereupon make would use VPATH, but the problem with that is
you can never have two files in two different directories with the same name,
or make can't tell the difference.  Maybe that's OK in your environment; I
would definitely never accept it in mine.

If you want to discuss this further I think asking on the address@hidden
mailing list, giving more details about exactly what you're trying to do, is
your best bet.
