Because the dependencies may be created files?  Often they are binary
(like libraries, or object files), and thus it would be useless to
distribute them.

What type of files do you need in there and distributed as well?
Just put them in EXTRA_DIST as well (you can use a `make' variable to
prevent having to list them twice).
