That's true.  I do have my own patches in that tree.

That wasn't necessary.  My investigation revealed the problem is (one or
all of) these genenerated files:

./include/autoconf.h
./include/bbconfigopts.h
./include/config/feature/last/fancy/show/header.h
./include/config/feature/last/fancy/time/days.h

They do not seem to be orderly generated.  'make clean' does not remove
them either.  'make distclean', though, does the job.
