Confirmed. In configure.pl, there was:

    generate_makefile($config);

    process_template(File::Spec->catfile($$config{'config-dir'}, 'buildh.in'),
                     File::Spec->catfile($$config{'build-dir'}, 'build.h'),
                     $config);

Since build.h did not exist until after the makefile was generated, it
was not included in the HEADERS variable and so not picked up for
installation. Fixed on head. Thanks for the report!
