If it only happens when building from git, that seems ok.  I was
reacting to the notion that this could happen to a user building from a
release tarball (both because builds shouldn't fetch, and because the
build might happen on a non-internet-connected machine).

Is the release procedure documented?  <esrbait>Back in the good old days
of autotools, I knew how to configure and make distcheck, but now I have
no idea how to prepare a release tarball from git.</>
