Does xorg use automake?  With automake-generated Makefiles (and some
non-automake generated Makefiles of course), the next make run should
re-generate/re-run the configure script if necessary, so it's generally
"ok" to use a slightly out-of-date configure.


Carefully crafted initial estimates reward you not only with
reduced computational effort, but also with understanding and
increased self-esteem.         -- Numerical methods in C,
