By messed up I meant that if you use the normal way of running tests:
   ./configure --prefix=/usr &&
   make &&
   make -k check || true &&
   make install

The make check will run configure again (twice actually) and overwrite
the files that were generated by "./configure --prefix=/usr && make".
Hence the standard way of building the tests is the one that Randy has
attached it the patch (i.e. run make check first, do a distclean and
then run the normal instructions).
