Missing in action during arm64/aarch64 builds: no pine64_plus.dtb to be found from buildkernel, installkernel, or u-boot-pine64

The context here is head -r323246 amd64 -> arm64/aarch64
cross build activity.

From installkernel :

# find /usr/obj/DESTDIRs/clang-cortexA53-installkernel/ -name "*.dtb" -print

From buildkernel :

# find /usr/obj/cortexA53_clang/arm64.aarch64/ -name "*.dtb" -print

From installing u-boot-pine64 :

# ls -lTd /usr/local/share/u-boot/u-boot-pine64/*
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel     125 Sep  6 00:49:44 2017 /usr/local/share/u-boot/u-boot-pine64/README
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  505940 Sep  6 00:49:43 2017 /usr/local/share/u-boot/u-boot-pine64/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin

As stands the file must be manually produced.

crochet goes to the trouble to have logic to
build and install pine64_plus.dtb (based on
arm64/pine64_plus.dts ).

Is pine64_plus.dtb required for the likes of
Pine64+ 2GB's? If yes: should it be automatically
built and installed someplace for arm64/aarch64
builds (even if more manual steps are required to
have the final placement on the Pine64 media)?
