add warning if configure or config
.status are out of date
Our toplevel Makefile makes no warning if configure.in changed or if you haven't reran configure after configure changed. This adds two rules to the toplevel Makefile, to ensure that the user at least has to explicitly skip this step.

Comment on attachment 421911 [details] [diff] [review] check configure freshness Seems fine. In the line where you say "To ignore this message..." you should probably note that the resulting build may not succeed.

Why not add some rules to automatically rerun autoconf and configure? If you didn't want to put them in the root Makefile itself, you could always put them in a separate Makefile, perhaps calling it client.mk ;-)
Can't, unfortunately -- there are too many automagic environment variables that are used as part of the configure process (not just ours, but configure in general -- e.g. overriding CC). The automatic rerunning of configure never really works for any project unless the invocation was trivial to begin with.
