It would help a lot if there was a dedicated make target for this.

We have has this problem several times now. Whenever we change a
configuration in the toolchain or in uclibc, everything needs to be
rebuilt. Unfortunately the Makefile does not automatically care about
this dependency. So one has make sure that the tree is clean before
running the build again. If there was a target that would take care of
this, that would help a lot.
