I hadn't considered a "make dist" for copying around a locally "fixed"
version.  Certainly, one cannot really maintain a package for which
they are unable to build all parts.  A reasonable approach hinted at
by Alexandre might be to simply go ahead and make the distribution,
but using rules I wouldn't use to produce a release.  I think I would
alter it so that "make dist" produced a non-release version stamp and
a "make release" would produce a release version stamp, but be disabled
when all functional parts are not being built.  I've printed out his
comments & will cogitate a bit on how to do this.

Thanks to you all!

Regards, Bruce
