The problem also occurs in the Base-7 modules and is caused by these
lines in configure/RULES_TOP:

Since INSTALL_CONFIG is in these cases pointing to a configure directory
that we didn't create, the uninstallDirs make target shouldn't be
deleting it. I suspect we should just remove the above lines, so 'make
uninstall' never deletes that particular directory.
