Is the "make depend" step considered a neccessary step in building
the world? Upto a few weeks ago it was possible to do

	make cleandir && make

everywhere in the userland source tree and get everything below recompiled
from scratch. Now you need to do

	make cleandir && make depend && make

at least in some directories (e.g. src/gnu/usr.bin/gcc).

Is this by design? I would call it a bug - this is not makefile semantics
as I understand it, everything that can be generated should be generated
when needed with apropriate dependencies.
