If that subdirs file really is updated by configure, then it's time to
file a bug report against whoever wrote those lines.  Input files to
configure should not be modified by configure.  Further, as already
stated, all files necessary to rebuild configure (in this case at least:
the subdirs file,, admin/Makefile.common (why does not depend on it BTW?), admin/*.m4 (same question)).

Probably to avoid having to write

for each subdir.

That attachment got lost on the way, so if there are further important
bits, it may help to put the package online somewhere and post a link
(use a pastebin if you don't have web space).
