I'm pretty sure this is not the case - the build was from
freshly-checked out source and an empty /usr/obj.

The problem was that /usr/include/net/pfkeyv2.h was not installed, not
that anything wasn't built.

I had a similar problem with the contents of /usr/share/mk not getting
updated on a machine that I took from 1.5 to 1.6 via source.

Reflecting on all the comments, I favor changing the conditional
install to install if timestamps differ or if content differs.
But, it isn't clear that this is worth the effort.
