If you're leaving build and source directories around once you've
installed a package, then you've not stuck to the text. You've missed
the following warning under "5.3 General Compilation Instructions".

  Important:
  After installing each package, delete its source and build
  directories, unless specifically instructed otherwise. Deleting
  the sources prevents mis-configuration when the same package is
  reinstalled later. 

This may or may not be the cause of your problems, but those warnings
are there for a reason. You have the right idea by creating separate
build folders, but it's not necessarily enough - there's no guarantee
that the source folder is unaffected by the first build, and so removing
and re-extracting the source avoids the problem.

Simon.
