I assume you have created that using »make dist«?  This one fails to
include said files, and a lot of others.

Please tell, what is the benefit of using (and for us, maintaining) »make
dist« compared to just using a Git checkout, or »git archive« if you
prefer?  If it's just to implement
<http://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/Standard-Targets.html> then
I would in fact suggest to switch to a simple »git archive« invocation
instead of maintaining all these lists of files, cp/ln, tar, etc.
