The script is dead - autoconf seems to write into the sources in the build process

Hello I noticed  that   after replacing   and  using autoconf ,    the  build process  writes into the sources .
Error  looks like this   :

Runnable configure script is not present
Generating runnable configure script
mkdir: cannot create directory `/openjdk/linuxppc64/jdk/.build': Permission denied

( I run  configure  from  a separate  generation directory  )

Is there a way around this  currently  (e.g.   placing the .build folder  where configure is started and not into the sources ?) ?

Thanks ,Matthias
