Authoritative answer: "It depends".
On what you 'did wrong", and what it takes to fix it.
e.g., if you're building a kernel the 'classial' way, that is 'configure,
make depend, cd , make', and realize you left something out of the config
file, after you edit the config file, you have to rerun _all_ those steps.
