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

Whenever config.status / configure runs it touches appliance/make.sh
(even if the file hasn't changed) and that causes the appliance to be
rebuilt completely.

This patch breaks that dependency because building the appliance is
time-consuming (since dracut was added) so we should try not to build
it each time.
