Yes it can, following the usual procedure for autoconfiscated trees:
just invoke configure from an empty directory, eg
        mkdir build
        cd build

This is something that breaks regularly because few of the key
developers use it :-(.  If there were automatic tests that used that
build setup, it would be a good thing 'cause it'd keep us honest.

Not to worry, the developers will notice that case fast enough.
I think the auto test script should just rm -rf build and then
proceed as above.
