But if the modules have their own Makefiles (which is not based
on anything Configure does) we certainly don't want to blow them
away by touching Makefile.tmpl and then writing over them :/

All I can see right now is adding a "blank" Makefile.tmpl for
"extra" modules requirement. Eventually, of course, we could work
magic in ConfigStart/ConfigEnd to handle this kind of stuff (eg:
All modules that want Configure to create their Makefile should
do a "touch Makefile.tmpl" :) )
