How does this happen?

Automake uses many shell scripts in its test suite.  They are
all executable and they don't lose their permission bits during
distcheck (AFAIK).

Automake doesn't use `chmod +x' nor `$(SHELL)'.  Anyway these
would be just workarounds, the real problem is why your script
lose its executable bit, not how to set it back.
