I still don't understand how a missing include does not cause an error in the compilation phase, but it can be ignore in the dependency generation.

tools/compat creates a dummy include file, if necessary. This is good enough for the compilation phase. I am not sure why it's not good enough for host-mkdep, but two ideas spring to mind: perhaps host-mkdep is run before the dummy include file is created, or perhaps host-mkdep is run without the -I flags that would allow it to find the dummy include file.
