make doesn't see changes in /etc/mail/

I've seen this behaviour for years, but never bothered
to ask why.

Imagine I already have in /etc/mail local .mc and .cf
files. Imagine I then update When I run make
nothing happens. What I think should happen is that
local .mc should be updated and then .cf generated.

Because of this behaviour I have to manually delete
local .mc files and all .cf files before running make.

Any comments?

many thanks
