after a quick search at the checkin_notes from 6.10.17 this looks intentional:

|    - build system: don't install config.h

I did not catch this when I was updating to 6.10.17, my bad.

The short term solution will be to include config.h on boinc-dev, 
Upstream argument is that is not sane to ship config.h since this can cause
problems with applications that use autoconf[0].
