Building the real thing after static version

I finally got to the point in chapter 6 where I rebuild gcc for shared 
libraries (THANKS Greg S for getting me past the locale problem!) and I 
have a trivial question... this section tells us to mkdir glibc-build, 
which we did previously for the static version in chapter 5.  Is it better 
to rm -rf glibc-build first so we start with an empty directory, or can we 
just rerun ../glibc-2.3.1/configure on top of the existing configuration 

I suppose folks who panic at the sight of "Directory already exists" when 
they run mkdir a second time probably shouldn't be trying this project on 
their own anyway, but it might help to clarify that point.
