No, sorry.  The files and configure have to live in the
source tree, as do installed files such as install-sh, config.guess,
config.sub.  You can turn off usage of autom4te.cache (see the Autoconf
manual), but it will make autotools slower.

I suppose source tree clutter could be one motivation to go for
nonrecursive Makefile setups.
