i think that being able to get away with

   $ cd /usr/src/usr.bin/make
   $ cc -omake -I. *.c */*.c

would probably make most people happy.  this can be discovered
experimentally by doing this:

   $ cd /usr/src/usr.bin/make
   $ cc -omake *.c
   [ it fails, lacking some symbols ]
   $ cc -omake *.c lst.lib/*.c
   [ it fails, lacking some header files ]
   $ cc -omake *.c lst.lib/*.c -I.

this is usually a good technique.
