Actually, maybe it was the ChangeLog needing an in-tree build that I was
thinking of.

IMO --snapshot should do whatever is appropriate to make an Emacs
tarfile for use on ftp.gnu.org. I think that includes sanity-checking
and adding a ChangeLog.

I don't have an opinion on whether make-dist needs to support
out-of-tree builds.
