Another obvious solution would be to exclude the broken Makefile from
the tarball (run "make distclean" in the Emacs top-level dir?).
BTW, Gentoo still has an app-doc/elisp-manual package which uses
these tarballs. But it wouldn't be a big issue for us if you removed
them. (They aren't very distro-friendly anyway, since they are
unversioned. Until elisp-manual-21-2.8.tar.gz they used to have a
version as part of their filename.)
