Is there a specific reason to do this?  I ask because it seems quite
unusual to me.  Do you perchance have a source tree that consists of
several subpackages (i.e., uses the AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS macro)?

Hmm, I can only guess that, if there is no technical necessity, that you
could just arrange your package so that `configure' would be created in
the root of the source tree, $top_srcdir.  Alternatively, maybe it helps
you to put a small wrapper script there that executes components/configure,
but then again I would not know why that would be a useful thing to do.
