The following is how I intended to fix this.  I'm not sure
it's what you want.  Anyway the patch below won't apply since
it predates Akim's sourcequake; I have yet to figure where the
relevent passage has been moved :)

        * (handle_dist_worker): When building the distdir,
        copy files from the build directory in preference to the source
        directory; that way the distribution is always built from the
        latest version of generated files.
