No. For the most recent example, look at
The patch was produced in exactly the way I described.

I usually do make extract (or make patch), then save the original file
before I edit it.
Then, I edit, turn my edit into a patch, put it in $LOCALPATCHES and
make clean; make patch (to see if it applied correctly) and make build/install.

You are right in that a "rebuild" target would probably ease the development
in that you could shorten the cycle to make deinstall; make rebuild;
make install.
