And move the rest of the .h files scattered through the tree, too, I

The only benefit I can see is that it encourages people not to "make 
build" to update their userland.  Convince me (with reasons other than 
"it takes to long to do that") that this is a worthwhile effort...  I 
personally don't trust "make depend" very much.  I've been burned more 
than once.

I usually just build everything while I sleep, which is quite acceptable.
I can't really do much else on the system, and I usually sleep for more
than 6 hours, not to mention shower and breakfast. ;-)

Agreed.  It doesn't take long enough to worry about how much longer it 
will make the build process.
