You don't.  Just if you update certain sources after certain changes
and then rebuild and install a new kernel.  There are fewer dependencies
than there used to be, thankfully, but there are obviously still some.

A checklist of them might be nice to have around, but the kernel build
framework is the wrong place for it since it would, by necessity, be
rather pessimistic about what would need rebuilding.
