When a new directory was added to Wine (git-update-index --add
*/Makefile.in), then configure.ac is updated by make_makefiles
The Makefile has a rule to rebuild configure, when configure.ac changed
The Makefile has a rule to rerun config.status, when configure changed
(That will rerun configure / rebuild the Makefiles)
So in the line 3 above is only present to reduce the total time.
