srcdir could lead distcheck to a corrupted tarball

Hi all,

I've been hardly beaten by the issue described here:

I still think that is a clean bug. From what I understood, VPATH
and srcdir are both ".." during distcheck, so also "../.." (that
is the directory where make distcheck has been called from) is
considered when resolving files prepended by $srcdir. This makes
distcheck succeed generating a tarball with missing files.

Is there any drawback in using abs_srcdir instead of srcdir? I'm
in the mood of a global s/srcdir/abs_srcdir/.

Why not add another subdir under _build to solve this issue?I'm currently 
playing with the attached dumb patch and thisapproach seems to work.
