This isn't what I observe.  Usually, when the system
build procedure changes, a plain 'make' causes 'configure'
to be rebuilt and re-run.  I do run into cases where this
doesn't work and a bootstrap is needed, but these are less
common for me.

For example, I just now merged the latest trunk changes
into my copy.  I'd guess it was a day or two's worth.  I was
delayed mostly by 'bzr' (that is, 'bzr up', 'bzr merge',
'bzr commit'), which took many seconds.  'make'
took just a few seconds.

Perhaps one of the differences is that I merge and build fairly often.
If you run into the problem again, perhaps you could jot down
the bzr version of the old Emacs, and of the new Emacs;
then I could try to reproduce it here.
