Well, why don't you just get into the habit of adding --config.cache
(or -C, for short) to the first configure invocation of each build?
It's not hard, and Automake's rules for re-running configure will
take that into account.  On the first invocation, it will not be any
faster than without -C anyway.

On the other hand, there are reasons one would not want config.cache
to be enabled by default for all users.
