Hi Eric,

Does this fix a failure or just ensure that we use more
up to date .xml files?

With just your cfg.mk patch, I ran a srcdir ./autogen.sh && make distclean
followed by "make check syntax-check" from a non-srcdir build dir.
It succeeded.

The only potential down-side I see is that this requires running Python
(though only in a VPATH build?), to recreate a distributed file that is
available in $(srcdir).
