The truth of the matter is that we don't use make distcheck.

The [not open-sourced yet] whenjobs-based release scripts build a
candidate tarball from git (ie. make dist).  Said tarball is then sent
to several build servers which './configure && make && make check' it.
So no distcheck is required, and what we are doing now is arguably
more thorough.
