No, new cores.  'configure' regularly generates
programs that dump core, as part of its ordinary
working procedure.

Why not just use ulimit to not dump core?  Or is that a bashism and not a shism?

The ulimit approach seems useful.

Blindly trying to remove a file named 'core' seems somewhat silly since many OSs do not write a file named 'core'. Instead they write a core file with some other file name or even write all core files to some other directory on the system.
