   You may use the AM_MAINTAINER mode, or fix the timestamps of the
various auto* files before calling configure. Use something like this: 
(order is important)

        touch configure.ac \ (or configure.in)
         && touch aclocal.m4 \
         && touch configure \
         && touch config.h.in \ (or whatever is in AM_CONFIG_HEADER)
         && touch `find . -name Makefile.in` (and other *.in files)

        ./configure $(FLAGS)...
