   Ah, so you're saying merely replace "beforeinstall:" with "includes:"?
   Interesting.  OK, I'll try that.

right.  the 'includes' target in a Makefile should install any
includes relevant.
   I just noticed another bug in the above, thinking about this:
   >> 	-cd ${.OBJDIR}; cmp -s {kadm,krb,ss}_err.h \
   Why the "-cd ${.OBJDIR}"?  There's no *_err.h file in the OBJDIR (especially
   if it's .../obj, using "${MAKE} obj"), so why isn't it "-cd ${.CURDIR}"

well, IMO, the way that it does the 'cmp', etc, is totally bogus...

nothing else in the tree cares about doing this -- it's not like it
matters, either, as the relevant [acm]time's are taken from the
source file.

of course, as i can't legally get src/domestic, and i haven't actually
read these Makefile's, i might be totally off  :-)
