The check for when to generate the generated configure script is not
working quite as expected. It currently only compares timestamps if the
local repository has any local changes in the make/autoconf directory.
This used to make sense when we had a committed generated script, but
now we actually do need to regenerate any time an input file is newer
than the generated script.
