I feel like I've mentioned this before, but just in case...in Mandriva,
the configure location is not hard-coded but is an environment variable
(CONFIGURE_TOP) with a default value of ./configure . If you need to run
configure from a different location, you just redefine CONFIGURE_TOP in
the spec file. I've found that useful in two builds, myself.

I think the last time this came up, someone liked the idea but suggested
a better implementation, and then the thread just died...
