Yes, but that leads to problems.
If old dependencies are around, then those will be read by the

ifeq (.depend,$(wildcard .depend))
include .depend

lines in Makefile. The `make dep' will create a new .depend file,
but the old one is used by make.
So, the "make dep" and "make zImage" must be done by separate
invocations of make.
