Here's a compromise:
- let's do the renames that need to be done (they're really not
  problematic, AFAICT).
- let's try and get this "djtar -n emacs-25.chg emacs-25.tgz" to work
  reliably, e.g. by auto-building the emacs-25.chg file as part of
  make-dist, so there's no way for that file to be "missing renames".
