Given that I always generated .d files as side-effects of generating .o
files, a missing .d file always meant the .o was missing, so my make
files didn't need to know what the .o file depended on, aside from its
primary source file, so I just used

include $(wildcard $(OBJECTS:%.o=%.d))

Surely that would solve your problem, without invasive surgery in GNU
make, or special-case handling of .d files anywhere but your make file ?
