It's definitely a good idea to get the generated Makefile.config out of
the repository so that users can maintain their own versions without

In order to do this, we'll need to fix the Makefile to have a rule to
generate Makefile.config if it doesn't exist by running configure, (and
it could also give a message letting the user know that it's running
configure without arguments, and the user can run it explicitly with
arguments if desired[*]).


[*] Of course, that's not *really* necessary until our configure script
actually *does* accept arguments, but we really should add at least
--prefix right away.
