lisp/emacs-lisp/cl-loaddefs.el in git archive

The file lisp/emacs-lisp/cl-loaddefs.el in the git archive is problematic,
because a file cannot be both a tracked source and a build-output in git.
Each build updates the file, thus dirtying the tree, requiring it to be
checked in before a fetch or pull.

Does the file need to exist in the git archive?  It looks to be a generated

[time passes, trying an experiment of removing it first]

Ahh, it appears that something is using it before it would have been created
or updated.  This would appear to be a build bug.  Can someone who is more
familiar with this process help me understand why this is the way it is, so I
can sort it out for the git archive?
