If there's a foo.cpp that includes foo.h and foo.h is generated by such 
a dyamic rule then a dependency from foo.cpp to foo.h is added. If the 
rule decides in a later build that foo.h is not generated anymore, then 
foo.h (and the dependency) is removed.
That's basically what I tried to compress into the word "automatically".
No magic, maybe even not worth mentioning, but an important automatism.
