Still fails in a VPATH build :(

make[2]: Entering directory '/home/eblake/libvirt-tmp/build4/src'
/bin/sh ../../build-aux/ylwrap ../../src/xenconfig/xen_xl_disk.l
lex.yy.c xenconfig/xen_xl_disk.c -- flex -Pxl_disk_
lex.xl_disk_.c is unchanged
make  all-am

Note that the rule tried to reference
--header-file=../xenconfig/xen_xl_disk.h, but that is not a file under
version control.  Generated files should (normally) be placed into
builddir, not srcdir, unless we plan on making those generated files be
part of the tarball (which in turn implies the generated file can be
built identically regardless of configure options, for a maintainer with
sufficient tools).

I'm still playing with it, to see if I can fix the issues.
