The autoconf package itself can server as an example for this; it's a 
Perl program, too.  The gist of it is that you write your own make 
rules with sed and friends.

Standard procedure in any case is to build during the build and to 
install during the install.  So what you have in mind is certainly 
possible but not the usual method.
