Yup.  That's precisely what is desired here.  Scorched earth, build
the world from scratch.  Otherwise, you *will* occasionally lose.

Most people are happy losing very occasionally if it saves a fair
amount of time on each pseudo-bootstrap, but AIUI Randal professes a
far more exacting standard.  Either that, or he's pretty unlucky and
loses on a fairly large fraction of his bootstraps.

Anyway, "make distclean" is the way to minimize bootstrap lossage.

As far as the ./configure line itself goes, sure, you want to save
that.  But there are plenty of ways to do that.
