I think what Ralf meant was that you said "most distros I support" as if
to imply that shipping a tarball generated with 2.2 would also require
end-users to have 2.2 installed to build it.  But the whole point of the
"make dist" tarball is that it's standalone and the user shouldn't need
any special developer tools to build it, other than a shell, compiler,
and make.
