That still doesn't make sense - even with UPDATE=1, the datestamp on the
files should reflect the time they are installed.  UPDATE=1 just means that
files which haven't changed aren't installed.

So, if libc.a is much older than, that means that the
shared object was rebuilt and reinstalled at the update phase, whereas the
static lib wasn't rebuilt(!?).
