	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 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.
	cd /usr/src/lib/libterm
	make depend && make
	while [ ! $bored ]; do
