I agree.  To quote Schwern in his original suggestion:

===
6.05 and previous had this:

dynamic :: Makefile $(INST_DYNAMIC) $(INST_BOOT)

6.06_01 and up have this

dynamic :: $(FIRST_MAKEFILE) $(INST_DYNAMIC) $(INST_BOOT)
===

The patch changed a substitution that was looking for the bit to keep 
("Makefile" or "$(FIRST_MAKEFILE)", which changed) to a pair of 
substitutions looking for the bits to lop off ("$(INST_DYNAMIC)" and 
"$(INST_BOOT)", which didn't change), so it should be fine.
