How can I get a build-date string with VDSP++?

How can I get the date that my Blackfin executable was built, preferably as a string, when using VisualDSP++?


If I were using make, I would create a small text string with the __DATE__ macro, put it in a small .c file and require it to be compiled every time the executable is linked.


But VDSP++ generates it's own make files.  How can I specify that a particular file MUST be compiled (or assembled) every time it's linked?  I know I could manually delete the object file, but that's laborious.  I want it automatically done for every build.


Or even better, is there a linker variable automatically generated that I can use?
