Rebuilding Makefile is used to rebuild the Makefile with user's  
changes in the dumped commands or pkg_tarball list changes.

You don't want it to do anything but that.

If you don't select that, then jhalfs reruns everything, extracts  
commands, attempts to download source, rebuilds the required files and  
overwrites any changes at all that the user may have done in the  
dumped commands. it's like starting brand new.

Also, if you select rebuild files in general settings and Rebuild  
Makefile isn't selected, it cleans out the jhalfs build directory and  
starts from scratch. If you don't select that, then the current jhalfs  
build directory isn't cleared.

Please refer to the Option Descriptions in the menuconfig help and  
read the README.CUSTOM file for more information. Read all of the  
documentation to understand all of what jHALFS can perform and how it  
performs it.
