I'm 100% sure that this did _not_ happen.

Apparently, building right now (I was not sure whether I should run
configure in case the old makefile could still have told us something).

Remains one issue I'm not entirely sure about.  According to an advice
by Juanma I usually run (and also did run now)

bzr clean-tree --unknown --ignored --detritus --force

in the source directory which should remove the makefiles (IIUC).  Maybe
I forgot to do that the past times, the makefiles persisted, and were
not overwritten (but touched somehow).  Unlikely, I know ...
