I must say this double / requirement is quite ummm.. obscure.

Actually it might be quite generic problem. Depending on particular header in
use you may want turn on/off optimization, threading, define some macro and
add addditional compiler option (like in my case).

On the other hand explicit dependency maybe usefull in a long term, so I guess
it's ok.
