Most importantly, it verifies that the .tar.gz we post on our website
(which is built with 'make dist') can run 'make all monotone.dvi check
install installcheck uninstall', all of which some user will want to do.

step 9 in release-checklist requires running 'make distcheck', as
part of building the .tar.gz source package.

'make distcheck' just found that 'tester-plaf.hh' was left out of the
.tar.gz; I fixed test_bin_tester_SOURCES

'make distcheck' now passes.

All the 'required targets' now pass on Debian and MinGW. 

So I think this is ready to promote to main.
