I'll keep your makefile in mind, what I ended up doing, is writing a
small batch file, the batch file takes a single argument, runs gpre
and runs the compiler, so the input is the .e file, and what gets
passed back is the .obj file, the intermediate .c is simply created,
compiled and erased. This has a bonus side-effect that I don't have
the .c files hanging around, so I can't forget and edit them. Nmake
is perfectly happy to run my batch file, if the .e is newer then the
