No, actually, it works fine for me.  I've always done re-bootstraps
that way (admittedly, I've never tried a naked "make bootstrap" in
Emacs, I just use a script adapted from my XEmacs habits, which has
never had bootstrap target, although make beta comes close nowadays).
My customary configure options are embedded in the script, which does

# code to assemble configure options in OPTIONS

ln -sf beta.err.`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S` beta.err
if test -e Makefile; then make distclean; fi
../configure >beta.err 2>&1 $OPTIONS \
&& make bootstrap >>beta.err 2>&1

Except that the user might not have saved off his configure line, I
really don't understand what the objection to distclean is.  It's not
like the configure step takes 10 times as much time as "make bootstrap"
itself does!
