That would slow down 'configure' everywhere.

It might make sense to have an Autoconf option that would
add that behavior as an option, for people who want to have
directories named 'core', and who don't mind the slowdown.

I don't see how this is related to the problem with 'core'.
It appears to be a separate bug.

For your immediate problem, the simplest thing might be
for you to rename the directory 'core', to 'Core', say.
If that's not possible, you could run 'configure' in
a subdirectory perhaps.
