Yes, this is a bug, due to us now including cfg.mk in the tarball.
Basically, cfg.mk has rules that cause 'make' to want to rerun
autogen.sh, but in a tarball, autogen.sh is unnecessary other than as a
wrapper around configure (there is nothing to generate if you are using
a tarball where everything is already generated).

So, I either need to fix cfg.mk to not run autogen.sh from a tarball,
fix autogen.sh to be a no-op when run in a tarball, or both.

I'm working on it.
