Subject: does .include order of dependencies matter?

I have this strange thing with a package I'm working on. The program is
written in Python and also uses py-ncurses. So at the bottom of my
Makefile I put:
But this way, only py-curses gets registered as a (direct) dependency.
When I switch these two lines, both python and py-curses are registered as
direct dependencies. Is this dependency on order of .include lines
intended or not? Anyway it's not documented.
Another oddity is that the #!/usr/bin/env python header is not replaced by
../../lang/python/application.mk when I set NO_CONFIGURE=yes in my
Makefile. Again: intended or not?
