This appears to be a consequence of this change:

2004-10-24  Paul Eggert  <address@hidden>

        * modules/regex (lib_SOURCES): Add regex.c.
        Reported by James Youngman in

We used to omit those *.c files that are "registered" through AC_LIBOBJ.

And it still works for me: When undo this patch and then use

  $ ./gnulib-tool --create-testdir --dir=/tmp/testdir regex

and, in the created /tmp/testdir do

  $ ./configure
  $ make
  $ make dist

the lib/regex.c is part of the tarball that "make dist" creates, and
"make distcheck" passes.

So the cause of James Youngman's problem in
was probably a different one?
