That's very terse -- rather: typically there is no need to manually
run the again. The toplevel make step looks whether
autogen/configure related files are up-to-date and then triggers a run
of the as appropriate. But that is skipped when
short-circuiting the build and only building a single module.

In the case of Info.plist: that's one file created by configure from
the template. make sysui doesn't look at that .in file,
but at the generated Info.plist only. So if you modify the, then you have to retrigger the run
- as said if you were just using toplevel "make", then that would be
taken care of.
