Alright, I can see where you're coming from. So ideally, to make use of 
the 'headers_check' target, you would run something like:

make mrproper
make headers_install
make headers_check
cp -av usr/include/* /tools/include

Correct? But if that's the case, headers_check re-runs everything you 
just did in 'headers_install', which makes the 'headers_install' kind of 
pointless. To me, it seems more like 'headers_check' is an extension of 
'headers_install', adding an extra step of verification.

I'm really not trying to argue the point, whichever way is ultimately 
best is fine with me, I just want to be sure I understand how 
'headers_check' is intended to be used.
