I think that's a setup that a lot of us use, and we don't plan to
change it. The proposed "automatic" directory creation would only
happen for people who run 'configure' and 'make' directly in the
source tree (which currently does an in-tree build) -- the behaviour
if they're run from some other (manually created) build directory
would remain as it is today.
