make acclean
(or moreclean or distclean or realclean) does this automatically.

Should we let "make clean" do so as well? It's a single-word change,
but are there adverse side effects? Considering how rarely I do "make
clean" myself, I don't think I'd mind the extra time usage for
reconfiguration (about 16 seconds on this machine).

configure --cache-file=/dev/null 
disables caching, according to the comments in the script (not
terribly elegant in my opinion...)
