arith.[ch] dependency should be fixed now.

My point is by having static SRCS files build becomes more stable.  I don't
see any point to generate these files at build-time.

I'll need to build very small NetBSD userland image using crunchgen(8).  Now
it always rebuild the result because each *.cro build dependency is hidden
in its Makefiles.  If programs have static SRCS files, crunch makefile can
check those SRCS timestamp and know if it has to re-build the program or not.
