This patch makes re-running avoid updating the timestamps
on the generated .h (and many other) files iff the files did not
actually change. This is really only helpful to people who are working
on the Configure system and are sick of having to rebuild everything
to test their changes. It should be safe to apply for everyone, but I
don't know if it's a good idea.
