Comment (by rhaas):

 Sigh, lost my carefully typed up summary. Here's the shorter one:

 The current code checks whether a configs/*/ThornList file exists and
 stores the result of this check hasStoredThornList however it then forces
 needThornList to be true for --rebuilds. Hence GetThornList requires an
 --thornlist option either on the command line or in the machine db. Ie.

 sim build
 will use the stored thornlist but
 sim build --rebuild
 will not and requires
 sim build --rebuild --thornlist configs/sim/ThornList

 I am not sure if rebuild will use configs/sim/OptionList or the option
 list from the machine db (I suspect the later). So the current behaviour
 is consistent in that --rebuild behaves as if a new configuration was
 build but it does not match well with how simfactory is actually used and
 what causes --rebuilds to be required (mostly changes that do not require
 a new ThornList).
