I have been playing with this for a while now and this what I am
currently using.  I have a dependency on the distributed subdirectory in
the build tree.  If it's there, great.  If it's not, I have a rule that
will stop the 'make' (for at least gmake and pmake) telling the user that
they need to --enable-local-libevent when running configure if they want
to run any "dist" target.

I would not be surprised to discover there are still corner cases, but
for now this solution seems to be OK.
