That change is 1.68, consisting of only

-               deps=${DEPENDS:C/:.*//:Q} ; \
-               for dep in $$deps ; do \
+               (${DEPENDS:C/:.*$//:@d@${ECHO} ${d:Q};@} ${TRUE}) | \
+               while read dep; do \

which does not affect the "find ... -newer" check that I believe is supposed
to give your functionality, several lines down from there.

So it was probably broken earlier than this.
