When I've seen this (but in release builds, not during etcupdate),
it is because MAKEDEV is magically generated to src, not obj
nor dest. You might want to check that.

I've also had problems with a couple of sendmail .cf files
behaving the same way: they are generated to src. Sorry, but
can't rememeber ATM which they were ( was the
other one, I think).
