Did you update files in an existing compile tree and then recompile?
Or did make distclean in your tree before re-running Configure and
running make?
I used to do the former and meet exactly these sort of config.h nasties,
without realising that not cleaning and reconfiguring worked much better.

The reason I didn't like re-running configure was because I thought
I had to re-enter all my changes from the defaults by hand each time.
However, if one uses Configure's command line parameters one can make it
automatically default to your preferred settings. For example, I now
use something like

./Configure -Dusedevel -Ubincompat5005 -Uinstallusrbinperl -Dcf_email=''  -Dperladmin='' -Dinc_version_list=' ' -Dinc_version_list_init='0' -Duse64bitint -Dusnm=n -ed

I think

make distclean

Will solve your problem
