I've observed the same thing. There seem to be a lot of packages that once
they've been configured, compiled and installed, won't rebuild without being
cleaned in someway.
One suggestion, maybe a new flag for a recipe that says that recipe rebuilds
need to start from a clean patched tree? Then if the do_configure -> do_install
steps have been run, it knows it needs to clean and fetch/unpack/patch before it
tries to rebuild the component... (Maybe sstate-cache can help speed this up in
Then over time we can find the items with the flags and attempt to fix them in
