If we turned these into packaged output then we could do this, yes. As
things stand those files aren't packaged and hence there are no
dependencies from which to infer/pull these in. Converting them to that
isn't a particularly trivial exercise.

We currently only generate them for libc/ncurses which provide most of
the configure cache speedups we'd want so it hasn't been a particularly
pressing problem to solve.

I'm all for improving this and will happily take patches but its not
something on the immediate task list as there are higher priority issues
