This is interesting, but based on my attempt to read the code (it's
not commented, and I don't speak ruby) I don't think you catch all the
cases. For example, when something like bsd.kde.mk or
../../someother/port/Makefile.inc changes, it can also affect ports
that .include those files, and cause a change to 'make index'. This
doesn't happen often, but it happens sometimes, and an incremental
index generator needs to handle it. There are some other corner
cases, but I can't tell whether your code handles them.
I have a make-based prototype that maintains and updates this
dependency information too, but it currently also has a bug (missing
newline on one of the 'make describe' outputs). I'm hoping to work on
that again this week so I can post the implementation for comments.
