Description mgross 2000-11-16 18:42:27 UTC
I know that makedepend comes as part of the XFree86-devel package, but that
did not seem like the appropriate place for this bug.

If I run makedepend on C++ files with a .cc extension, it spits out
dependencies in the form:

file..o: foo
file..o: bar
etc, etc

If I rename the file file.c and run makedepend, I get
file.o: foo
file.o: bar
etc, etc

So it looks like there is some error in the pattern matching for .cc files.
Maybe it is just looking for the last c and replacing it and the character
before it with a .o

Thanks,

I believe someone has fixed this in X sources.  If not however,
please report these types of enhancement requests upstream to
XFree86 directly in the future for faster enhancement/bug
resolution.

4.2.0 in rawhide probably has the droids you're looking for.  ;o)
