commit 722a56439aa5972c830e4a9a724cf52aff4a950a
Author: Darren Tucker <dtucker at dtucker.net>

    Move stale-configure check as early as possible.
    We added a check in Makefile to catch the case where configure needs to
    be rebuilt, however this did not happen until a build was attempted in
    which case all of the work done by configure was wasted.  Move this check
     to the start of configure to catch it as early as possible.  ok djm@
