Thanks for the response. Just to be clear, you're suggesting running
./bootstrap in-tree and then configure, and subsequent steps out-of-tree? I've
been making a copy of the source into a working directory and doing an in-tree
build in the working directory in order to keep the source directory pristine,
but I'm having trouble remembering a real reason for the pristine source
directory now that I think about it. Maybe it was that my default git commands
might fail given conflicts, but I can change them to be more forceful.
