I'd say no.  From maintainer's point of view, this clear separation of
runtime/tools packages helps much, compared to a single large

If the configuration time really matters, you could try --cache-file
option of the configure script.

See (info "(autoconf) Cache Files"):

  When `configure' calls `configure' scripts in subdirectories, it uses
  the `--cache-file' argument so that they share the same cache.
