Yes, but 'make' is run a lot more often than 'configure' in some
workflows.  I think one implicit gnulib expectation is that configure
is not run often.  (FWIW I don't agree, because if your source tree
is several times larger than your gnulib extract, then it really matters
whether you need to rebuild the world even rarely.)

I proposed using stamp files before, but there are (understandable)
reservations against them.
