You're confusing "build-dir" and "install-dir" again. "clean" and "distclean" affect only the build directories and have no affect on the install directories. "build" by default looks at what's installed.

There are three basic ways to force a re-build:
* Pass the --force argument to build or buildone
* Set build_policy = 'all' in .jhbuildrc-custom
* Nuke the target of --prefix

There's a control file somewhere that you can edit as well that lists all of the built modules. It used to be in $PREFIX/lib, but it seems to have moved and I can't find it right now.
