"make distclean" would have helped, too. ;-)
the problem is, that configure sometimes (dunno why and when) puts
absolute paths into top_srcdir, etc.  otoh, some other paths are still
relative. as make performs no path normalization (paths are mostly only
strings, dunno the exact rules wrt. file targets), it simply does not
know, how to create the mocs. reconfiguring from scratch fixes it.
