make default target /creates/ files in the source directory?
But isn't this wrong and verified by making srcdir read-only in
`make distcheck'? Thought it would only /update/ and only in
`maintainer cases' (such as changed

Documentation states `In fact VPATH builds are also a means of
building packages from a read-only medium such as a CD-ROM'
(but surely meant from a src tarball where the .info will would
be included and up-to-date anyway).

Wouldn't this break things (e.g. in VPATH leading to a .info in
src and builddir?)?
