Side note: I'm not convinced that we will reliably catch a compiler
version change in our dependency analysis, so it's probably best to
"make clean" between switching compilers to make sure that you don't
have old object files with the old compiler.

.. and our build infrastructure definitely _should_ catch compiler
switch changes automatically and force a re-build.
