If it isn't simple to fix the dependency generation and you decide to go
with renaming the files, I'd suggest also teaching the script to notice
when there's more than one file with the same name, and turning it into
a fatal error, so we can't be bitten by it again. Better to fail loudly
than to silently do the wrong thing.
