As »make dist« in some places just considers the current configuration,
it really is flawed.  That's also the reason that you don't notice the
missing files (but just do a diff of the tarball built by it and the
source directory) -- they're not used in your configuration (for example,
without console-client/ncursesw.c, no nfs/nfsd, only the x86 architecture
in libthreads and pfinet), and for the missing *.h files (such as
libthreads/i386/cthreads.h), GCC is probably picking up those from the
system installation's /usr/include (which definitely is not correct
either).  Instead of fixing this system, I really think we should switch
to using »git archive« and some pre-dist hooks (rebuild documentation,
etc.).  Compare to what glibc is doing.  Any counter arguments?
