Reason being is that configure won't consider it an error if
a dependency I'm trying to catch isn't found, or there's an
error with the dependency. It would just drive on and run make,
and so forth and so on. Then I'd have to uninstall and do it

I used to do that, but just recently changed my scripts because
I've just installed everything *so* many times, that I kind of
have a good idea what can, and will, go wrong. So now I just
build once, after getting a perfectly clean 'make'.

Yes, the locales for example. This is a separate step I do, timed
all by itself.
