Two weeks ago, /you/ introduced the `config.status --recheck', which
runs configure and rebuilds config.status, unconditionally, without
regard to configure having changed or not.  /I/ thought you had good
reasons for that and so I made sure that my changes preserved this
behaviour (by touching configure).  Now, you changed your mind about
unconditionally rebuilding config.status.  Fine.
