Make screwing up on #include?

Make files have always given me no end of grief.

Any here is a brief rundown on what I have

I have a Device class from which a Tool and Fastener class is derived.  RotationalTool is derived from Tool.  I have various Commands that are derived from Command class.  Then I have a Human class which includes all of the above.  When I do a #include "Human.h" in Device.h I get a whole mess of Device is undefined.  What would cause Device to be undefined simply by including human in Device.h?

"RotationalTool.h", line 19: error(3114): identifier "Device" is undefined
    virtual inline Device* Clone() const { return new RotationalTool(*this); };
                   ^


If you think it would be helpfull I could attach the #includes from each file
Following is the makefile I am using

heracles 874% more Makefile

.SUFFIXES: .o .cpp .c

# to use static ananlyzer in most descript mode uncomment the following
#CC = CC -sa,staticdir
CC = CC
DEBUG = -g -DDEBUG
INCS = -I /usr/deneb/vmap/Axs/include -I /usr/people/mv135329/cppLib    
C++FLAGS = $(DEBUG) -DFUNCPROTO $(INCS) -lmalloc_cv
APPLIB  = ../../lib

.cpp.o:
        $(CC) $(C++FLAGS) -c $*.cpp



OBJECTS= Tool.o\
        Device.o\
        Human.o\
        RotationalTool.o\
        Fastener.o\
        LoosenCommand.o\
        TightenCommand.o\
        ResetCommand.o\
        GrabCommand.o\
        Tag.o


irad.so: $(OBJECTS)
        $(CC) $(DEBUG) -shared -all $(OBJECTS) -o irad.so
        @mv $@ $(APPLIB)

clobber:
        rm -f *.o *~*

This has nothing to do with makefiles.  It sounds like it is a problem in the order in which items are declared in the header files and/or the order in which the header files are included.

In your own words

>> Device is undefined

That would be expected.  The Human.class depends on the device class.  Thus the human.h file needs to include the device.h include file, not the other way around.

Try making human.h include device.h instead.  If that doesn't work, can you post the files.  If the files are too long to post, can you e-mail them to me?  My address is nietod@theshop.net.
