I do not believe this is true. It still isn't clear why updates to that
directory were not being remade automatically. In fact, I believe that
was a one time problem. Running 'make' in english/ports/powerpc right
now gives:

$ make
make[1]: Entering directory `/debian2/web/webwml/english/ports/powerpc/install'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/debian2/web/webwml/english/ports/powerpc/install'
make[1]: Entering directory `/debian2/web/webwml/english/ports/powerpc/pics'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/debian2/web/webwml/english/ports/powerpc/pics

so the subdirs are being checked even if nothing changes.
