What that line does is to build a tool (aicasm) to generate the ucode that
is built into the kernel (afaik, it is a kind of assembler from a language
to AIC sequencer code). That is, the tool uses db1 (as mkdep.c uses glibc)
but once you have generated the sequencer instructions, that is what is built
into the kernel, not the tool (aicasm).
