No.  Files in the build directory *will* get distributed.  I can't
find a note in the automake manual that says this.  Empirically,
however, I've found that the "make dist" target in the generated
Makefile will look for each distributed file first in the current
(i.e. build) directory and, if not found, in the source directory.
