That looks suspiciously like a srcdir vs builddir error to me. If you are using
a VPATH build, does it work better as an in tree build?  Thanks to the magic
of `git clean`, I only exercise VPATH during `make distcheck` these days...

Half expected at least, because we display the `git describe` output in the 
./configure header, and that changes with each commit.

It would certainly be nicer for make to autoreconf successfully without a
manual rebootstrap :-(

Patches welcome... I've added it to my TODO list to look at after the next
release too, in case no one else has time or inclination before then.
