When something doesn't work, then you do "make flush" and then it
works, it means that you've hit a configuration cache issue.

I'm more and more tempted to disable this configuration cache feature.
According to the autoconf maintainers, it could theorically work, but
in practice, there's no real convention on the variable name/value
stored in the configuration cache, so re-using the cache between
different packages is going to cause a lot of troubles. As we are
