Yep that's the puppy. Looks like there is a Makefile bug which is leaving
this one .depend:
cd /usr/src_amd64
make cleandir
rm -f
find . -name \*.depend

I added pcvt into the relevant place in usr.sbin/Makefile which fixes
make cleandir but it then breaks the buildworld.
It looks like pvct/keycap is being force built by tools/
but hence when make cleandir's is run its not cleaned. Also tried altering
Makefile.inc1 to set pcvt/keycap as a member of _generic_libs but that
doesn't work either. I don't know what else to try.
