Nope, make_keys falls into the 2nd category of build-tools, which do not
show themselves up in .depend.  I call them "safe".  Only cc_tools and
miniperl are "unsafe" because they show up in .depend.

What Luigi's script missed is the call to build-tools early, before going
with -nostdinc and /usr/src/include headers.
