      Description

      It would be useful if Qbs could scan and track dependencies in linkerscripts (gcc-based toolchains mostly).

      The linkerscripts might contain INCLUDE statements that include other scripts. Currently Qbs will not link again as a result of one of these being modified.

      The ld documentation says:

      INCLUDE filename
      Include the linker script filename at this point.  
      The file will be searched for in the current directory, and in any directory specified with the -L option.  You can nest calls to INCLUDE up to
      10 levels deep.
      
      

      This is mostly useful when working on "bare metal" embedded devices.
