As I said, it was just a pot-shot so I am guessing. But it could be that the 
timestamp on the corrected file via svn was older than the last attempted 
build, which might cause make or configure to not realise it needed to 
regenerate something.

I have had odd build errors before that were only solved with a make 
distclean, then configure/make cycle. The automake tools all depend pretty 
heavily on timestamps to save doing unnecessary work, so if a file gets 
injected with an older timestamp than the last build it can mess things up.
