People run into problems when they upgrade a library and then configure uses the
old cached value. For libIDL and glib/gtk+ (perhaps others) it should be easy
and fast to recheck the version using their *-config scripts. If the version has
changed, then the cached values should be recomputed.

I just checked in a hack to fix this.  Basically I prevent the
cached value, if any, from being used.
