   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.

BTW, in case it makes any difference, I don't use unsermake (that is,
I run UNSERMAKE=no make -f Makefile.cvs).  This is because a)
unsermake doesn't work with checkinstall, and b) I hate the fact that
unsermake doesn't print out the full compile lines for everything.
