I don't have that problem... And I've been experimenting with clang as
my compiler!

By the way, I never use git pull. I always do git fetch; git rebase
origin, which is what you're supposed to do anyway if you have local
patches in your tree.

Another thing I do is run autoreconf, because I have local changes to
configure.ac in my tree. That might have something to do with it.

I have noticed a change in configure behavior, though. config.status
creates the makefiles during make, not configure. I find that odd, but
it still works, so I'm happy.
