Thanks very much.

I'm not sure what did the trick in the end, but some combined effect of the 
following commands sorted it out:

make config  (brought up the menu!)
make   (returned as if everything was already compiled)
make distclean  (did some work)
make    (returned as if everything was already compiled)
make install   (compiled the new extension, then asked for a deinstall)
make deinstall
make reinstall

Where is this documented (i.e. is there any way I could have found this out 
for myself)?
