I don't see a "make clean" in there, and it doesn't seem to be
available anymore with the new Python based build system.

Rather than compiling on top of your old code, which may not
completely detect dependencies on altered include files and force
rebuilding of new binaries, why don't you work from a fresh source
tree and build from scratch? This is especially important when the
build components themselves, such as that Python "waf" build tools,
may be modified by the udpates.
