Why in Makefile.SH is there: h = $(h1) $(h2) $(h3) $(h4) $(h5) $(h6)

This is a list of headers.  I presumed it was for helping determine 
dependency info, and have been faithfully adding to it when I've added a 
header, but others haven't.

Indeed it is used to create .hlist, which makedepend uses somehow.  But 
experiments have shown that a header doesn't have to be added to this 
'h' list in order for its dependencies to be found.

Can someone explain this, please?
