Don't get so tired, Greg. :-)

Sure, one can often do "./gen-make.py build.conf" instead of
re-running autogen.sh. In any system with a hierarchy of operations,
there will always be commands that are supersets of other commands
(e.g., "Have you tried rebooting?").

If one can keep it all straight in one's head, so much the better.
But if not, it's easy enough just to give simple advice that one knows
will work every time.

Note that I'm not protesting your posting of the more efficient
recipe, which is welcome and useful. But there's simply no need to
chide those who post suggesting the less-efficient superset. They're
right, too, and their posts are equally useful, even if they lean the
other way in the convenience-vs-efficiency tradeoff.
