I kept on seeing this with rescue/ when I was trying to fix the kerberos5
and telnet builds.

There is something dodgy with the crunchgen stuff that leaves behind
.o files compiled with the wrong -DFOO defines. Result is things that
don't link properly much later.

I'd need a complete log to comment further. PLEASE DON'T EMAIL IT!! Please
put it somewhere for me to fetch. Any diffs to release/Makefile and the
exact command line used to kick off the build would be useful too.
