[i386] Invalid BSP-Error without sb-bootstrap

We found some unexpected behavior when rebuilding the current RTEMS master for i386.
If we run the update as usual: pull current master, bootstrap, configure and finally make for i386 the compilation fails with the error 

checking for RTEMS_BSP... pc386
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
configure: error: Invalid BSP
configure: error: ../../../../../../../rtems/c/src/lib/libbsp/i386/configure failed for lib/libbsp/i386

It also fails if one selects any other bsp.
Now we found the sb-bootstrap  command in the new documentation[1]. If I use this one the configuration and building work.
Does that mean from now on the traditional (=slow) bootstrap shouldn't be used anymore?
>From the explanation in the docs it sounds as if sb-bootstrap would do the same as bootstrap, but faster.

Best regards,
