.. and that red herring was what made me think that it always
recompiles the 'conf' binary. But no, that's not what is going on.

profiling shows that it does spend a lot of time in the compiler
(which was the other thing that made me incorrectly think it was the
conf program getting recompiled every time), but it looks like maybe
it's simply the cc-option testing that causes that:

33.68% cc1plus
16.71% cc1
14.75% ld
11.36% conf
7.51% sh
7.21% as
3.01% gcc
2.44% make
0.58% mkdir
0.39% rm
0.24% collect2
0.23% cat
0.22% grep

Oh well, I clearly misread the problem. Maybe 1.5s is more reasonable
than I really expected it to be.
