Without deeper thinking - the first what comes to my mind is that -- 
create-deps should generate them for both C and ASM files, which are  
not compiled C files. Thus the only smartness would be required to  
distinguish between "native" and "compiled" asm, which - I guess -  
shouldn't be too difficult.

I think I know what you mean ;-)
