Because I build Apache three or four different ways to test it.  Very
often I build the first time with prefork, then I build with mpmt_pthread,
and so on.  But, it can be days between changing the MPM to the next
one.  If I forget to re-run dependancies I spend hours tracking down bugs
that aren't there.  To fix this, I always end up running make clean;make
whenever I build.
