Yes, it's better to fix the so that the supplied dist
target work than trying to write your own.

Can you explain what you tried?  Telling which version of
Automake you use and showing your would be a good

Note that
  1) nodist_3dldf_SOURCES works for me
  2) the rules I suggested in the previous mail do not 
     need any nodist_ variable

I don't understand what you meant.  What do you want to delete
files that are needed?

It is (if you override dist and dist-all at once, as they appear
in the Makefile), but I urge you not to do it.
