Yes an integrated build/SCM system allows you to do that and keep late 
identification.  As I wrote earlier - my example of cc -c *.c was just a 
'simple' form of late identification because we do not yet have an 
integrated SCM/Build system, and wont for another year or so.

Obviously you'd only use such an integrated build/SCM system if the benefits 
were valuable to you, even with ClearCase you don't NEED to use clearmake - 
just the benefits are so great most people do.
