But it doesn't do the same thing.  If you want AM_MAINTAINER_MODE, why
not actually use it?  At least that means you can configure it to

How come?  I can only think that means the tarballs are built
incorrectly regarding timestamps.  If so, it could be a problem with
other things, such as .info files depending on .texi.
