make dist depending on binaries which use gnulib

it has just been pointed out to me that "make dist" for current head
of GNU Zile fails, unless preceded by "make". This is because make
dist distributes a file which can only be made once the zile binary
has been built.

I have two questions:

1. Is it expected that "make dist" should work without a preceding
"make"? i.e. is this really a bug?

2. If so, then I have a further problem: if I simply make the file in
question explicitly depend on zile$(EXEEXT), then zile is compiled by
make dist, but cannot be linked because it needs ../lib/libgnu.a. How
do I correctly make "make dist" build this?
