If this expands to "rsync the latest changes to the build directory
before you
build; and if you forget, it builds anyway but your changes are
it's unappealing.

Maybe I misunderstood your process; aren't you firing up a fresh
container for every build? If you're still doing incremental builds,
then this suggestion doesn't work obviously. Just as a thought, then you
could run once on the host in the beginning (or have a second
container that is allowed to write, but only runs autoconf).
But anyway, I'm not going to continue reasoning about an environment
that is so distrustful to any script that could do bad things. I can
probably live with the found solution for now, let's see how often it
causes headaches in the future.

If the current little hack threatened to grow into something awful, an
question to ask would be, "What's the problem with having to configure
building the website?"  I'm referring to this comment from early on:

As my comment already hints to, I'm all in favor to drop (at the least
the current version number from) VERSION. I have a patch or two that get
rid of some scripts that rely on VERSION and instead use files generated
by configure. However I don't understand what "make website" does and
how it is used in production right now, so the file is not going away in
the next days. But that's not really the topic of this patch.
