I often use

./config.status --recheck

when I want to detect new installed tools; however, when I move something to some other directory, I need to re-run ./configure manually, otherwise make complains about some missing files (required by a; this requires to re-run configure with the same arguments that were originally used; now config.status knows about these parameters, e.g.,

./config.status --version
source-highlight config.status 2.11
configured by ./configure, generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61,
with options "'CXX=/usr/lib/ccache/g++' 'CXXFLAGS=-g' '--prefix=/home/bettini/usr/local/' '--enable-maintainer-mode' '--enable-warnings'"

so wouldn't it be useful to have an option in config.status that re-runs configure with these parameters (instead of having to remember them or copy & paste them)?

what do you think?

thanks in advance
