If you can delay building the rescue stuff until after everything else,
you can use ldd(1) on the built binaries for everything else and hash up
the list from that.  I do something similar in a set of scripts I have to
generate filesystems for small systems (i.e., I create a variable in a
Makefile listing all the programs, and it automatically includes all the
libraries the programs need) with a little sed/awk.
