Or how about:

        mkdir option1-build-dir
        cd option1-build-dir
        ../configure --with-one-set-of-options && $(MAKE)
        cd ..
        mkdir option2-build-dir
        cd option2-build-dir
        ../configure --with-another-set-of-options && $(MAKE)
        cd ..
        touch $@

This also preserves all of the .o files for each set of options, which takes
more disk space during the build but dramatically accelerates the process of
rebuilding for one or two source file edits.  Then the install (or binary) step
can just "$(MAKE) install DESTDIR=whatever" in each build dir.

Still holds.  In fact, that and dh_clean are about all you need to do.
