+        Sometimes changes to the LLVM source code alters how the build system
+        works.  Changes in libtool, autoconf, or header file dependencies are
+        especially prone to this sort of problem.

+        cases, this takes care of the problem.  To do this, just type <tt>make
+        clean</tt> and then <tt>make</tt> in the directory that fails to build.
