To repeat from the earlier reply, one may want to take precautions,
so when a future upgrade adds a configure script, one drops the '|| :'.
IMHO adding precaution cruft like "[ -f configure ] && exit -1 [...]"

(s)he doesn't even trust oneself or others to check if the upstream
build system has changed between releases...
