Yes, I am. If that's feasable, it would really make development of
multi-file backends easier. I really hate to always do "touch
backend/gt68xx.c" after a change in one of those other gt68xx files.

I'm rather clueless about automake and/or depend files so if anyone
has more experience with this topic please go ahead and tell us what
the easiest solution is.

That would be good. On the other hand that file can be changed at any
time as the external backends list is updated immediately and not only
at releases.
