I guess so, unless literature says that env variables
used at ./configure time should be remembered in config.status

Isn't CXX env remembered for instance ?

Dunno.... it's in 'Wish' severity anyway...

I don't have any real problem. The thing was I used to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH in the environment of the call to ./configure, which correctly found the stuff.

Then, when some of the automake files changed, 'make' triggered run of ./confg.status, which in turn failed to remember that PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment (maybe the problem would be in config.status creation itself, in that it doesn't dump the environment).

Not a big deal.

We're actually not using autoconf cached variables, cause they add complexity. We could do this, but it's probably easier to fix this one case at a time. Which particular tests are giving you a problem ?

This is just a guess, but when automake files are changed,
a 'make' run (under maintainer mode) fails to use previous
values for some stuff, so I guess it's pkg-config or
--enable-sound and friends not being cached.
A quick look at macros seems to confirm the former.
