Yes. I edited 'sysctl.h' in sys/sys, and run 'make includes' from sys/sys
to reinstall it, and nothing happened.
By investigating a bit I noticed that the target (cmp -s in this case) was
not run because 'make' compared the date of /usr/include/sys/sysctl.h with
the one of /usr/include/sys/sysctl.h instead of ./sysctl.h (that is, the
target instead of the source).

How to repeat: just edit sysctl.h and run 'make includes'.
