Yes, I hadn't realised it, but this does appear to be the symptom.
When I remove config.cache, a fresh call of configure fills in the
in-place location of happy correctly. But a second call of configure
without removing config.cache loses the location.

Why should the script look for a version number of something it just
claimed does not exist?

Slightly more sense, yes. The following would be even clearer:
checking for installed happy... no... but using happy from the source tree
checking for version of happy... 1.9
