It seems completely spurious to me - normal practice is to blow away
the config on a distclean, not a plain clean. And seeing as the
patch is about removing noise during the normal build, I figured
this qualified as a bug causing noise.
I can separate it out into another patch, but I'd really prefer that
make clean doesn't result in running configure again. Especially
considering the build dependencies are very broken so the only way
to guarantee a build catches all changes is to do 'make clean;
