No, that's not reasonable ;-). make dist should work in any case because it
packages source files and source files can always be there. Admitedly
there are also generated files that are shipped, because the maintainer
is supposed to have the possibility to generate them, but in that case
all the files leading to that particular generated file should be
shipped such that they are not even rebuilt if the user didn't changed
them, and they should only be removed by make maintainer-clean.
