IIRC, this will also help on Mac OS-X which lacked this.

ACK, good change. The automatic refresh was broken anyway, because
the generated files are needed from ../src before the build even
gets to qemud/. These generated files / wire protocol define ABI
and should never change for ordinary builds, so its safer to keep
generation of them an explicit maintainer task.
