The EXTRA_DIST variable was indeed lacking unistring/cdefs.in.h. Does this
mean that Hydra creates its tarballs using the 'make dist' command? For
snapshots taken from version control, this 'make dist' rule is most often
not up to date. "make", "make check", and "make install" are frequently
tested during development, but "make dist" is not.

It would be more reliable to just tar up the checkout (with --ignore=.git
--ignore=.gitignore --ignore=CVS --ignore=.cvsignore etc.), rather than
to try to use "make dist".
