    How about put the whole thing into a script, then run that script instead of
    the original ./configure, ie (not tested):

    1. Edit:

    #! /bin/sh
    ./configure \
    --option1 \
    --option2 \

    2. Make executable
    chmod 755

    3. Run instead of the original configure script;
