I don't think the "script which *calls* configure" is necessary, but 
please be aware....


GPLv3 explicitly requires redistribution to include the full necessary 
“Installation Information.” GPLv2 doesn't use that term, but it does 
require redistribution to include "scripts used to control compilation 
and installation of the executable" with the complete and corresponding 
source code. This covers part, but not all, of what GPLv3 calls 
“Installation Information.” Thus, GPLv3's requirement about installation 
information is stronger.
