Does this avoid rebuilding *anything* else?

One of the problems with the suggested fix on the wiki is that it can
put your tree into a bad state because of missing dependencies you
might rebuild only part of glibc and fail.

For example if $t.out depends on, then what happens
if you've touched a file under nptl/? Likewise for

I'm not saying we shouldn't do this, but that we should document the
limitations of this command.

And I suggest 'make onecheck' to match 'make xcheck' and 'make check' :-)
