since cppunit is using GNU autotools, this should already work (if you
know how).

for every build configuration, create a separate directory next to the
source directory, cd into the build directory and then invoke configure
via the path to the source directory. then no build files will be
generated in the source directory, so no conflict.

mkdir build_32 && cd build_32 && ../cppunit-x.y.z/configure --with-foo
--enable-bar && make
