There was always a rule for configure as well, otherwise I wouldn't have
added one for config.in.  But the difference with config.in is that it
depends on a third file, src/stamp-h.in, that functions as a timestamp
file, because autoheader does not modify its output if it wouldn't change,
thus to avoid running autoheader again and again the stamp file is needed.
I have already extended make-dist to fix the timestamps for distribution.
