Thats a shame.  My -current build took a few iterations to stabilize.
Two passes to build cleanly, and a third pass for me to be convinced
that all the new tools had been built with the new tools.

For example, krb4 and a very small handful of things didn't build the
first time, but they all built on the second pass.  While I did have
an "oh sh*t, I'm f*cked now" moment when things failed, a "make -k
build; make -k install ; make -k build; make -k install" did
eventually get things worked out by the second "make build" pass.

If this behaviour is documented, I don't think folks would panic...
Its a minor annoyance, but not unworkable.
