Thanks for fixing these issues so quickly. I have tried this change and it behaves reasonably well. It no longer aborts prematurely (at least I have not seen an instance of it yet) and it seems to properly handle the dependency order. I do have a couple of issues that yet remain. I have one instance of a generated C file that depends on a generated header file and for some reason the dependency does not work. I am still investigating this issue since it was present before your changes and may just be something I am doing wrong. The second issue is that when I do a build immediately after a full build has completed (i.e. w/o any additional changes), I would expect everything being up to date. Instead, there are a hand full of C files (always the same ones and not generated ones) that are always rebuilt. This behavior is consistent across all my builds and never converges. I will try to come up with a scaled down example of this for you.
