Someone might have some reason (stupidity? :-) to use relative
pathnames in environment variables that affect configure.  I'm not
sure we should support this case, though.

Sounds reasonable.

Anyway, it's not like such files are going to be lost forever.  If
you're running configure, it will overwrite some files in the build
tree anyway (config.h, Makefile, etc), and, if you have a.exe in the
build tree, built off your Makefile, it's probably easy enough to
rebuild it.

But saving and restoring doesn't sound bad either...
