    Despite their wide use, the unix make tool and its variants have
    difficulties in tracking implicit dependency of C/C++ source files on
    included headers. Great efforts are needed to ensure that once a
    header is updated, any source file that includes it must be re-
    compiled.

    Modern build tools (such as BJam, CMake, and Scons) are compile-smart.
    They perform deep scans on sources files and figure out what headers
    are included (directly and recursively), thereby avoiding the need of
    expressing the dependency explicitly in build descriptions.

    Qi-make is link-smart. By searching the inclusion dependency graph, it
    can automatically identifiy the set of compiled objects, as well as
    the set of libraries (in the correct order) that must be linked in to
    create the final executable.
