After an aborted or clean build in a directory outside the gcc source tree,
"make distclean" is supposed to remove all configuration information.  However,
that is not the case for at least one target (pdf).  Using gcc-4.5.1 in my
build directory (as a bash user):

$ cd gcc_build
$ ../gcc-4.5.1/configure
... # nothing unusual
$ make pdf
... # nothing unusual except pdf target seems to
    # result in LOTs of extra compilation

Come back the next day

$ export CC=/usr/local/bin/gcc-4.5.1
$ cd gcc_build
$ make distclean
$ ls -aCF
./  ../  fixincludes/
$ ../gcc-5.5.1/configure
... # nothing unusual
$ make pdf
