Is there any way to run a notfile or make target before a lib target is run as they seem to run after lib target.

I am trying to extract sources from a compressed file before doing a glob-tree. If someone has a recipe that do this, I would be much obliged.

Trying to do something like,

rule extract_src ( )
        echo "Extracting sources" ;
actions extract_src
        "./gzip" -xvf $(>)

extract_src ;

lib xyz : [ glob-tree *.c ] ;
