BTW, Automake still does not take full advantage of the current
config.status.  It could perfectly well have foo/Makefile have a
trampoline to top_builddir/Makefile which would recreate all the
obsolete Makefile (and config.h etc.) at once:

~/src/ace % ./config.status bin/Makefile tests/Makefile tests/autoconf
config.status: creating bin/Makefile
config.status: creating tests/Makefile
config.status: creating tests/autoconf
