Sure, you can do like that. Or just answer correctly the question the ../tools/configure script asks you:

# ../tools/configure
This script will setup your Rockbox build environment.
Further docs here:

Enter target platform: (defaults to Recorder)
1 - Archos Player/Studio
2 - Archos Recorder
3 - Archos FM Recorder
Platform set to recorder
Enter size of your RAM (in MB): (defaults to 2)
Memory size selected: 8 MB
