Nope. That's weird. It's not obvious from git blame how this was ever meant to work.

There's no reason for it to rediscover the module names, it should just use the value of $MODULES and test each of the specified module directories for a configure script.

There's a good reason for having both $MODULES and $mysubdirs but AFAICT $mysubdirs should always be a subset of $MODULES.

I'm going to push a fix, and if Alan has any insight he's welcome to revert it/correct it.
