Since you are building your source tree against old headers and
libraries, the only situation in which this will work is when the
headers (and libraries) haven't changed significantly between your
installed version and new sources.  In practice this means you can
only get away with it when doing 'small enough' upgrades.

A more reliable, but still not 100% reliable, method to upgrade your
system more quickly than building world is to add:

make includes
make libraries

before 'make depend', which works around those two problems.  It still
doesn't work around other kinds of bootstrapping problems that occur
from time to time, which buildworld is designed to solve.

But of course, when either of these methods fail, the responsible
thing to do is to fall back to a buildworld before claiming the
existence of problems.
