 My regression, my bad.
 I wanted to make DEPS symmetric with SRCS.  I seem to have made a
 mistake because of that.
 I would fix this by making 'assym.d' be always built
 (s/^assym.d:/assym.d!/ in sys/conf/
 I can also point out that touching a *.h doesn't cause all other
 indirect *.d to be regenerated, even on source before my rototill:
 echo '#include <sys/foo.h>' >>sys/conf/param.c
 echo '#include <sys/bar.h>' >sys/sys/foo.h
 touch sys/sys/bar.h
 (build kernel)
 touch sys/sys/bar.h
 (build kernel)
 => is param.d rebuilt?
 => is kernel rebuilt?
 The easiest fix would be to make all *.d generation rule be always
 built (s/xxx.d:/xxx.d!/) too.
