Well, no matter what the user does, if you install over the existing install the
configuration gets reset/wiped, so this isn't really a problem.

If the user wants to preserve the configuration they can install the new
configuration into a staging area and diff between the existing and new.

This is pretty standard stuff in the Autotools world, so I have been told. :)
