No matter how many times I rebuild /usr/src/lib/libterm, make
is always happy to build it again.
This seems to be a result of the bsd.inc.mk rules invoked
for termcap.h. Because of the .PHONY, make apparently decides
that /usr/include/termcap.h was changed even when it wasn't,
and since everything else depends on it, it all gets rebuilt.
(Yes, doing "make UPDATE=1" makes it not do that.)
There are probably other places it does this too. I just
happened to notice it here.
