I'm not familiar with that feature of autoconf. The check in make puts a 
dependency between spec.gmk and all the files in common/autoconf. If 
spec.gmk isn't touched, make won't budge. Running config.status isn't 
working on my machine though, so I will need to investigate this a bit 
more and see if we can get it working.

I think it needs to touch some config files if they are unchanged or whatever test is blocking the build needs to consider that it may have been re-run and nothing changed.
