Yes you need to recompile and reinstall, but you normally do not need to make 
clean before running make && make install. If we (as we quite often do) touch 
a commonly used header file, the rebuild might get a little long some days. 
Investigate the use of ccache which will help cache compilation results and 
speed up recompiles of the same files.
