We use edep from jungerl to manage record dependencies in normal  
develop/make cycles.

A quick "make depend" after a checkout sets up makefile dependencies  
for all record definitions. This at least means that future calls to  
make after a record change will cause all dependent modules to be re- 

Highly recommended for larger projects.
