I just had a second look at your and, and found that
things are actually quite simple.

All you have to do is to change
in (and the same for all other SMB_SUBSYSTEM's)

and change
	ifelse([$2], , :, [touch $2])
	ifelse([$2], , :, [rm -f $2])
in the definition of SMB_SUBSYSTEM in aclocal.m4.

Thus instead of touching the source file configure removes any existing
object file. That's all.
