Well, that's the other way to solve it ;). Haven't used konstruct for some time now
(switched to Suse after many years vith RH/Fedora), but konstruct do have som directorys
that is named cookie (or somting lik that).
In thos directorys ther are files that indikate the status of the konstruct build: configure, build and install,
if I recal ok.
Removing av "install" file and running make will reinstall the files (no config and no compilation).
Nice to no to the next time ...
