While this might be the right thing to do(*) I think it will become
a problem -- reading in and processing the entire GNUmakefile.cfg
every time make is invoked in either the examples or tests
subdirectories will be prohibitively expensive on slow systems.

(*) If we did decide to go this route, we'd need to do the same
thing for the other dependencies, i.e., the library and, for tests,
the test driver. That will slow things down even more.

I would try this instead:

   $(DEPENDDIR)/%.d: %.cpp | config
