With ports, a "make clean" before rebuilding is a good idea. The build
might not be able to continue cleanly, or might have to build
differently, depending on what was changed.
For /usr/src, I just remove /usr/obj/usr and build again, but also use
devel/ccache so there's not much penalty for doing that.
