[ntp:hackers] It gets worse

Awhile back after a make dist failed on a fresh configure/build, Harlan
reminded me of a prior message about some special procedure I had to do
so that would work. I had no idea such a message existed; in any case I
couldn't find it, so I didn't do anything and the problem fixed itself.
The same problem happened just now, so I can't make dist and move the
stuff somewhere else for checking with a different compiler.
However, I asked and was reassured that after moving the distribution to
another place and extracting that it was possible to change some source
file and make dist to move the result somewhere else. I did just that
now on pogo and make dist failed the same way. I did that on a FreeBSD
machine and make dist failed in a different way. I don't think this is
Harlan's intent, so conclude something is broken.
