In one package (malaga) I finally settled on taking advantage of VPATH:
I simply configured and built it in different directories for different
set of options.  I don't remember whether I had to patch upstream build
system, but if I did, the patch was small in any case.

As for the building of separate packages without resorting to cut&paste
coding, you can take advantage of GNU Make's target-local variables
(see many of my packages for almost-relevant examples).
