Right you are.  Can you tell I don't do checkout very often?  :-) 
Because regenerating those files doesn't necessarily change the
contents, a simple commit won't update the repository and thus the files
currently in the repository don't have the correct timestamps to avoid
make trying to regenerate them.  That's something we'll have to take
care of before making a new release.  In the meantime, the following:

        touch aclocal.m4 configure

should be sufficient to get make to carry on with the real work without
trying to regenerate stuff it doesn't need to.
