If you want to avoid running configure as much as possible, but still
run it when necessary (to avoid breaking the build), always run
"make".  It will run configure for you when needed (by the virtue of
rules in GNUMakefile), or run config.status, or none of them at all,
getting directly to compilation and linking.
