You're looking at the wrong thing I'm afraid: How the files get named
depends on the $(@D)/.$(@F).d thing in CFLAGS. What gets put in
$(DEPS) (and hence gets included) depends on the construct above.
So the correctly named files get generated, but they get neither
included for proper dependency checking, nor would they get
deleted by the "clean" rule. And since the inclusion of $(DEPS) has a
minus sign in front, make wouldn't complain about not finding these
