I reviewed it and am in favor of the change. I do find configure a
rather odd place to be creating those directories, but the change is an
effective solution, especially with the prevention of an unnecessary
recompile. I'm willing to accept less than elegant for functional in
the build system -- after all, who cares how elegant things are if they
don't build!
