But I don't see what the point of using %configure would be when the
software being built does not have make use of autotools.
It seems your concern is the build flags, so why not just use
%set_build_flags? %configure does that first, then goes through and
modifies various autotools-related things and finally calls the
configure script. It seems that nothing but %set_build_flags is
relevant at all when autotools isn't in use.
