Assume you have a shell program named getstate, along the lines of:
# access one line of state, given appropriate prefix
cat "$1"* 2>/dev/null | tail -1
then you can put into your makefile:
MYSTATE= `getstate cheese`
Now you can have targets, such as
echo >>mylog $MYSTATE
echo Howdy >cheese2
Or, perhaps something less simpleminded.
