First off let me state what version of the autotools I am using:

(Gentoo x86 system)
automake: 1.8.5
autoconf: 2.59

I find that the depcomp and all necessary files are grabbed what tarball
is made via 'make dist'. So there is no need to try and manually grab
those files by yourself. You are doing work that has already been done.
bin_PROGRAMS = hello_world

hello_world_SOURCES = main.cpp

So I modified your test to read:

  bin_PROGRAMS = hello_world
  hello_world_SOURCES = main.cpp

That's it.

When I removed your attempt to grab depcomp and the other associated
files I found it passed make distcheck.
