I'd tend to tell make you are building the .h file, and add something
explicit to ensure the .c file isn't compiled before the .h is generated.
That way you get a correct build when multiple files include the .h file
(and when 'make depend' adds the dependencies).

Explicitly adding the foo.o: foo.h rule is probably enough.

In some senses this isn't a bug !
