cp: ../../doc/stamp-vti: Permission denied

I'm trying to figure out whats going on here.  I have a small project with
a texinfo file in the doc/ directory.  I have

info_TEXINFOS=  foo.texi
BUILT_SOURCES=  foo.texi

in and foo.texi gets created from with autoconf
(there are a handful of values which get propagated to several places
including the documentation).

In the texi file there is an
  @include version.texi
after the header.

Everything seems ok when I build, but 'make distcheck' gives the following

gmake[3]: Entering directory
cp: ../../doc/stamp-vti: Permission denied

this is because its trying to copy $(srcdir)/version.texi to
$(srcdir)/stamp-vti, but $(srcdir) is read-only for 'distcheck'.  

Is this a bug or a pilot error?
