The special case is creating them unconditionally.  Though now I
wonder if `dist' really works in the presence of conditional sources.

It is assumed that the person running `make dist' will be a maintainer
and have maintainer tools.  If not you are in trouble.  For instance
you can ship a package where configure is out of date if you try hard
