This should be optional, as it also erases any manual changes added to
the cache file.
Ah - I did not know that users would ever modify the cache files. Given
that they do though - is it right that they should expect their changes
to be preserved across a reconfigure ? I would have thought that the
cache files would have the same status as Makefiles - OK to modify for
temporary local changes but never expected to last for very long.
