Modification times

I am rebuilding my kernel for the umpteenth time, and this time I
noticed something I had never noticed before, a plethora of warnings
about .hdepend having a modification time 1.7e4 seconds in the future.
When I looked at the linux-2.4.24 directory, this is an excerpt of what
I saw:

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        14910 Mar 21  2004 .config
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         4311 Mar 21  2004 .depend
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       197505 Mar 21  2004 .hdepend
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            2 Mar 21 19:05 .version
-rw-r--r--    1 573      573         18691 Aug  2  2002 COPYING
-rw-r--r--    1 573      573         82089 Nov 28 13:26 CREDITS
drwxr-xr-x   33 573      573          3760 Mar 11 22:32 Documentation

Is this something to worry about?  Why do some dates have YYYY in
the date and others the hh:mm?
