This could be interesting indeed, and I agree with your request.

There is another answer: in camlp4 2.02, you have the printer "pr_depend.cmo":
      camlp4o pr_depend.cmo
which syntax extensions if you need:
      camlp4o pa_extend.cmo q_MLast.cmo pr_depend.cmo
and the -I options, after --:
      camlp4o pr_depend.cmo -- -I dir1 -I dir2

It applies to one file. Therefore, in a makefile:
      ocamldep $(INCLUDES) *.ml *.mli
can be translated into:
      for i in *.ml *.mli; do \
        camlp4o pr_depend.cmo -- $(INCLUDES) $$i; \
