Don't think so, the only thing that might change is the prefix path,
if you where using PREFIX, you should pass --prefix=/... to configure
script instead of setting it on .config or env variable. If you want,
you can take a look at the makefile variables defined from configure,
the template is in config/Tools.mk.in.

If you where setting any of the variables defined in
tools/Tools.mk.in, check for the appropriate way of setting it from
configure (either by passing --enable-foo or by setting the correct
environment variable when executing configure script).

That sounds ok, could you test it before pushing the change? I don't
want to break your test bed.
