Quick note: on our 10.13 build systems, I find that that preferences
file has been saved in the clone of successful nightly builds, but is
missing from the /opt/local that's been cloned.  Might the underlying
problem be that I'm using Xcode's make to run the builds? in which
case, mebbe the kludgearound would be to do the purge from one
cronjob, and the full build in another an hour later.

Thanks for that observation.  I'll report results once I've results to
