Problem with distribution of bin_SCRIPTS

In my package I would like to generate a script from a source file by
simply copying it and setting the executable bit. I do not need to
distribute the script though, only the source.

No matter how hard I try I cannot get automake to work using the
following set-up:

* The script source is distributed
* The script is NOT distributed but is generated from the source

I have attached a very small example package that reproduces the problem.

If you run "make distcheck" you should get the following error:

 cp --preserve foo
 cp: cannot stat `': No such file or directory

This is dispite being listed in EXTRA_DIST.

Any help is greatly appreciated...
