how does incremental make work when switching to a different git branch? 
will an incremental make figure out switching branch and re-build? If not I prefer to use make check UPDATEONLY=1
otherwise I will forget when I swtich branches and run "make check" and the binary will be from a different branch.

Also remember the guest vms may not have correct itme, mostly time will be wrong.
