generate Makefile from without calling ./configure ?

I am working on a smaller part of a project. There is one at the source root so to configure the whole tree i allways called configure.
Now this configuration became quite a bit lengthy and time consuming.

Since everything is still the same, configure doesnt need to guess or detect anything new.
So i wondered if there is a way to generate a new Makefile from a
in my directory only without reconfiguring the whole tree (by calling configure).

The question wasn't all that clear.
Are autoconf and automake what you're looking for?

I think you can run config.status in the top level directory to recreate all the Makefile's
