Subject: [PATCH] appliance: Don't rebuild the appliance every time configure runs.

config.status touches make.sh each time it runs, even if the
resulting script would not change.  This causes the appliance
to get rebuilt much more frequently than is necessary.

There's no way to stop configure running, but we can move the
config.status command into a Makefile rule to stop this
undesirable behaviour.
