How can you establish source code level dependencies in Visual
Studios?  We use an in-house code generator, invoked as
a "Pre-Build-Event".  The generator itself is also a project in
the solution, and all of the other projects are declared to
depend on it.  Never the less, Visual Studios invokes the
pre-build step on some of the other projects before the code
generate project has finished building---apparently, all
dependencies are assumed to be linker dependencies.  Is there
any way to work around this.
