how hard can it be to configure it to DL's specs.

The nonrecurrent engineering charges would likely make the pricing unattractive without multiple airframes to amortize the cost.

why does everyone just think make someone an offer to (insert american airline name here) take it.
I am sure boeing has a plan for a M$200+ item on its inventory. Its not like a $2 shop. Boein may want to keep it on hand for that moment when an airline is willing to pay above list price for it to get one quick. or a leasing company to buy it, or god forbid for an airline that needs it due to a write off.
In the first line (insert american airline name here) has gone bust because of deals like this in the past.

That's not true! United bought some 747-451's and 757-251'a previously ordered by Northwest airlines UAL did NOT pay full price for the airplanes. Whatever the going rate is minus the progress payments is what they'll pay. Since Boeing doesn't build "White Tail" Airplanes
