That _is_ expensive, but it works.  Since the project likely has
a fairly stable installation directory, good ol' grep-n-sed ought
to be fairly simple.  Just capture the output (with "tee" if you
want to see it "live") and extract what you need.

All-in-all, staging the installation to a DESTDIR and *then* tarring
it into place is not a bad thing to do anyway.  That makes the
 cd ${DESTDIR};find * -type f
thing less wasteful.

P.S. in researching this, I found in my own logs a bunch of these:

It all has to do with backup directories for texi stuff.
Only happens in "make distcheck".  Seems to be innocuous,
but it is disconcerting.
