Well, it's a little later.  Let's see if I can get it right this time....

I recall now that I never rechecked make dist after switching to the new 
gnulib repository.  It turns out that there were changes to 
git-version-gen that broke make dist again.  I committed the following 
patch, which fixes it for me.  I tried with and without git installed.

I guess we need another sync with coreutils.  For example, it seems 
GNUmakefile is now part of gnulib, and it has updates too.
