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

pspacek commented:
Oh, you are right, I was mixing `CONFIG_STATUS_DEPEDENCIES` and 

So please let me explain the problem with `AC_CONFIG_FILES`:
`AC_CONFIG_FILES` properly substitutes variables only in Makefiles, as 
explained in [Autoconf v2.69 manual chapter 4.8.2 Installation Directory 

Yes, we can use `AC_CONFIG_FILES` so all variables can used for substitution, 
but in that case only subset of all usable variables will be substituted 
correctly. I do not think that it is right approach.
