Sure.  Sorry.  Didn't think of providing that.

1 # cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/gsl checkout gsl
2 # cd gsl
3 # ./autogen.sh
4 # mkdir ../build
5 # cd ../build
6 # ../gsl/configure
7 # make distclean
8 # find . -type f

Will find the file
(and _only_ this file).

This should have been deleted as it is created by the configure

If step 7 was replace with a "make distcheck" after a series of "make"s,
and "make check"s it will fail with an error because of the existence
of ./gsl/Makefile...

I can run "make distcheck" and give you the exact error message, but
it will take some time.  :-)
