For make builds it is, for meson there is a static rte_config.h which
includes the dynamically-generated rte_build_config.h.

While nothing mandates this design, and we can change it if people find it
confusing, I though it worthwhile to have a config header file for stuff
like this that is not normally configurable, but some folks might want to
tweak in custom builds. For 20.11 I'll try and remember to update the docs
to cover it a bit, so that people are more aware its there.
