Create two patches. One with changes to configure.ac and possibly other
changes another with configure only. Of course you send only former to
wine-patch. Then if you version of automake matches to the one AJ uses, git
rebase will automatically throw away the later patch for being already
applied upstream. Or you can always skip this patch during rebase.
Same applies to any other automatically generated files.
