Have you got a design in mind?

No details written down, no. The basic idea is to use GNU Make to glue together Autoconf-style snippets, instead of Autoconf's sequentializing them into a shell script. This would 'configure' run in parallel.

Doing this properly will require telling GNU Make about dependencies among the snippets, but Gnulib is already keeping track of dependencies, and most of Emacs's configury is taken from Gnulib so that would give us a head-start in doing the conversion.
