I have actually seen people doing exactly that as part of a Makefile
setup (using Bourne shell).  Personally, I never copied that setup.
It is a bit odd that I did not, since I do not doubt that it worked, 
and I usually do not mind a little bit of chewing gum and tape in my 
config :-)

I cannot remember where I saw it.  It has been at least a decade.
