Instead of "re-compiling" you must "re-configure from scratch" after an OS
	rm config.cache

An even more foolproof (but considerably slower) version of the above would
be to throw away your 1.3.0 installation, and re configure from scratch.
This means that if your build directory is = source, you trash everything,
unpack the tar file again, etc.
