You can add this to your script ;)
Seriously, I'm not sure to follow the problem, but I think you cannot mix the build directories for different targets anyway.
I would expect that configure takes an argument to identify where you want the build to take place as well, rather than use an hardcoded default, so simply adapting the build script would do the same, really.

Today I have a source forest and a top-level builds directory that contains
my build scripts for the different platforms. I simply do build-x.csh or
My recollection from building configure based tools is that now I would have
to do something like:
<run configure for platform x>
<run configure for platform y>
And thereafter I'd have to identify the right build-x or build-y directory
to do the actual build.
I'm not saying this is intolerable just saying that this is more cumbersome
than what I have to do now and I'm unclear what benefit configure is
actually going to buy me.
