No, configure is not machine-dependent.

Configure is not machine-dependent but some developers may claim it to be so if not all developers on a project are using the same autotools versions. This can result in large configure script patches being submitted to the versioning system based on otherwise tiny changes. Due to this, many projects do not check the configure script into their versioning system. The files have a similar issue.
