I tried that at first[1]:

The problem is that while /htdocs/index.html depends on
/htdocs/Changes/index.html, it may very well happen, that index.html is
updated or /htdocs/gallery/events.html is updated, but
/htdocs/Changes/index.list is *not* updated.

In that case make(1) will not produce output for
/htdocs/Changes/index.html, which is why I eventually reverted to
grep'ing the content from the .html file, which, through
make-dependencies, must be up to date before /htdocs/index.html is


[1] something a la "cd Changes; make | sed -e '1,3d' >> index.tmp; cd
