As was pointed out in the meantime they are not really global yet.

It is not only existing headers that are a problem but also generated 
headers or generated binaries, e.g. see the recent problems in or
the problem with the delzip magic interacting with an svn optimzation, 
etc. the build --all --deliver trick doesn't work reliably.

Anyway, since there is much opposition to the idea to default to a clean 
build I stop that now. I'll point to this thread though when someone 
complains about rotten binaries coming from a "build --all" or when time 
is being wasted on hunting non-reproducible problems created by these
