Just for the record: this problem does not exist in the GNU/Linux build
procedure.  More specifically, in the Unix makefiles, "make bootstrap"
kind of like "make clean; make".  So presumably, by suitably changing
the Windows makefiles to mimick what the Unix makefiles do, we should be
able to get the same behavior.

Of course, making it possible to build the Windows version via
./configure would also solve it.
