I gave #2 a try, and it didn't change the output of make dist.  However,
moving everything into the top-level dir (#1) did solve the problem. 
Unfortunately, I don't currently have any control over the directory
structure (the motivation behind the attempt is to keep platform
specific items, i.e. *nix makefiles, VC++ 6 project files, etc. in
subdirectories away from the source files).  I'll speak to the powers
that be and see about getting this changed.  Thanks again.

Thanks, I'll keep this in mind.
