Hmm... I don't know what to do about it either.. Maybe we should just go
ahead and compile even so -- I don't think it's worth stopping the build
for.. But a warning is certainly in line. Something along the lines of "Hey,
user! There are files here with a modification time in the future. I'm going
to go ahead and compile them, but because of this, I'll compile them each
and every time until you fix things!"
