Effectively it does, unless you use the right options. Whether that was
a design decision or not, I don't know.

I use it to build a source tarball for the snapshot windows builds; I do
an out-of-source build here, because I need to build it twice (i686,
x86_64) and I don't always do a clean build with the snapshot.
