It should remake the rtl at all. Simples maybe is to temporarily rename
/usr/local/src/fpc-1.9.2/rtl/ to .../rtl2

The FPC makefiles actively search for the RTL root directory when compiling
in the tree, and some change in defines or dates might cause them to

You can guard against this by compiling your snapshot with RELEASE=1, which
adds a parameter to the buildprocess that signals "never rebuild this" (parameter -Ur)
