For BSD makefiles, it's usually done like this:

#
# include a dependency file if one exists
#
ifeq (.depend,$(wildcard .depend))
include .depend
endif

You'll of course have to use 'make depend' to get it working...

Well, the 'include .depend' directive simply instructs 'make' to evaluate a file called '.depend', that was previously created by running 'make depend' on the current target... I'll see if i can point you to some web sites.
