I always re-run -- this is now my script segment w/new make clean:
  echo ">>>>>>>>>>> `pwd`"
  [ -r Makefile ] && make clean  # unless it's a fresh tree
  ./autogen.sh && \
    ./configure 2>&1 >> ${LOG} && \

For some reason, both 32 & 64 are installed... not something I went out
of my way to do.
