Good news then!

It depends on the changes that have been committed to the sources.
If or m4 files (including libtool ones) have been modified,
then yes, even CURRENT needs being rebuilt.
Of course not all changes in or m4 files have an effect on
your system (for instance if the change is related to a portability issue
you do not need on your system), so usually not rebuilding configure works,
but anyway it is better to.

What I do is :

make maintclean
./configure (with a few flags)
make warnings
cd tests
make warnings
