I guess that you need to do a "make distclean" in texk/web2c and then
configure again.

I, personally, never compile in the source tree. My sources are in
and I usually do
  rm -rf /build/X; mkdir /build/X; cd /build/X
  /t/texlive/Build/source/configure; make

I.e. I can remove safely and completely everything that a previous
configure / make / whatever has created in the build area.

This does not work with all versions of "make", but can use this
"feature" with GNU make.
