Comment #4 by Cedron DAWG:

Yes, please.

My motivation is the scanning program I am writing.  My program reads every instance of "gambas.h" (or whichever), reads it in then compares it to the previous copy in memory to see if it is a duplicate.  Obviously a linked file will be a duplicate.  The program scans the whole tree, parses, and reports is less than "one mississippi", so it is a niceity not a necessity to be able to check.  I can also replace my "found first in" column with "source at" value.

I don't know how gcc faces the same issue.
