Indeed, you had to re-run configure. There was a bug where -Werror was
added to the build flags, causing several configure tests to fail
(most notably, it would determine that there's no memmove on Linux).

The makefiles already do that: if configure changes, a plain
"make" will first re-run configure.

Not necessarily. You can also ask, at the buildbot GUI, that a
non-existing branch is build. This should cause the checkouts
to be deleted (and then the build to fail); the next regular
build will check out from scratch.
