No, you don't need to do that again. After making clean, just "make depend"
and "make", and all should be fine.

"make clean" does not erase the compile directory, just the object
files and the kernel image, so no old object files are lying around
after changing the configuration.

So, go to the conf directory, make "config MYCONF", go to the compile
directory compile/MYCONF, "make clean", "make depend", "make". If this
is the first time you build the configuration MYCONF, you don't need
to make clean at all.
