It would be useful to quote the error message.

Is this section applicable to tarball builds (which don't use
autogen.sh) too?

How does this compare to the HACKING (docs/community-guide/) section
containing Karl's "voice of experience" email? Should they
crossreference each other?

It would be useful to explain why this happens or what needs to be run
when. IIRC the permutations are: if Makefile.in changed, re-run
configure to regenerate Makefile; if configure.ac or build/ac-macros/
changed, rerun autogen.sh to regenerate configure (then run configure);
if build.conf or build/gen-make/ changed, run ./gen-make.py (which is
normally invoked by autogen.sh) to regenerate build-outputs.mk.
