Title: #268: Build system must regenerate file when template changes

pspacek commented:
I already described problems with `AC_CONFIG_FILE` in 
https://github.com/freeipa/freeipa/pull/251#issuecomment-261470338 a week ago, 
including envisioned move from `AC_CONFIG_FILE` to `Makefile.am`.

Please propose a solution which does not have problems mentioned in 
https://github.com/freeipa/freeipa/pull/251#issuecomment-261470338 so we can 
consider it.

For the record, this sed replacement is nothing unusual. The sed replacement is 
what [Autoconf v2.69 manual chapter 4.8.2 Installation Directory 
 recommends and is already used all over the place in the build system (init 
directory, daemons/ipa-otpd, and elsewhere).

It is pitty that you did not comment on envisioned direction a week ago, nor a 
three days ago when first version of this PR was published.
