How come? At least in my own workflow, I've been surprised by an
uncopied config.h repeatedly. My expectation is that if I change a
source file (e.g. config.def.h) that config.h will be updated.

But I always make my customisation changes to config.def.h and let git
merge DTRT when upstream changes things. I can see that if someone
makes them to config.h and manually copies over new config options then
he'd be surprised.

Is this just a case where I'm not understanding how most folks are
performing their customatisations?
