Some local problem with timestamps, together with a bug in bsd.files.mk (it uses a hack to create dependencies, and this results in things being rebuilt at install time if something is out of date; building things at install times is an error and the error happens to be detected because some utilities needed for building are not in $PATH). > My environment has /usr/bin in its PATH.

The error is not detected in this case because there are too many utilities in $PATH. Building at install time would still fail if the relevant obj directories are not writable.
