Everybody, please make sure that "make distcheck" works after
commiting changes to the build system, or other changes.

The typical problem is that some new file is not included in the
distribution tarball, or that a new Makefile rule does not properly
work for a vpath build.  These problems are normally easy to solve
when one is aware of them.  Running "make distcheck" will test for
things like this.

The snapshots process runs "make distcheck" every night.  I could sent
the logs for failed builds to <address@hidden> or some other
list.  Would that be OK?  The logs are quite large, depending on where
the build failed: up to 0.5MB.  Alternatively, I could truncate the
logs to their last 100 lines, or so.
