Great, that fixed it.

I did have to rerun ./autogen to keep it from doing this:

    gcc -g -O2 -I../include  -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe  
    -I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/i686-linux/CORE @PERL_WARNINGS@  -c perl.c

and in this case it was pretty obvious that something needed to be 
updated.  However, the fact that I had to pick this up manually means 
there's an implicit dependency somewhere in the build process...and that 
some subtler change could slip by without me realizing to ./autogen. 

Is it feasible to make these dependencies explicit?  I imagine it's a bit 
hairy to have `make` lead to the makefile being rebuilt, but perhaps just 
have it die with a detailed message?
