You said "after `maintainer-clean' or a fresh checkout".

I always bootstrap like this:

  cd trunk
  bzr --no-plugins clean-tree --unknown --ignored --detritus --force
  cd nt
  configure  # several options
  make bootstrap
  make install-bin

and it just works (I have sed in the path, of course).
