I pushed a fix for this:


The error was that both libgnu/libgnu.la and oct-conf-post.h are listed in $(BUILT_SOURCES), but those can be built in any order. So I added an explicit dependency on oct-conf-post.h, and now able to rebuild after 'make clean'.

I used 'make clean' to remove cruft and then 'make' to re-build.  This fails with the following messages:
