This is *THE* single biggest problem people have when building


1) make includes
2) make cleandir in the problem directory and then try rebuilding

80% of the problems posted to current-users are fixed with this

If you are on a fast enough machine, doing a "make build" is *far*
superior to doing an ordinary make.
