Then let's rewrite the system so that configure is always made, precisely
once. We can arrange that there's a real configure (e.g.
../../../platforms/unix/configure/configure) which is invoked from
../../../platforms/unix/config/configure. And we can add a check to
../../../platforms/unix/config/configure that will make
../../../platforms/unix/configure/configure if necessary.
Please, who will volunteer to do this?
