I'm now seeing a 'make distcheck' failure.  Remember, during 'make
distcheck', automake arranges to change the source directory tree to
read-only, then does a VPATH build of that location.  If any make rule
tries to write into the source directory, it is a sign that the tarball
has incorrect timestamps.  And sure enough:

make[3]: Entering directory
  LEX      xenconfig/xen_xl_disk.h
flex: could not create
Makefile:10402: recipe for target 'xenconfig/xen_xl_disk.h' failed
make[3]: *** [xenconfig/xen_xl_disk.h] Error 1

although the failure details aren't mentioned, it is because this is the
phase of the build where srcdir is read-only.

We're making progress, but it looks like we still need more patches in
this area to make sure things are correct (possibly as simple as
distributing the witness timestamp file, so that make from a fresh
tarball sees no reason to re-run flex?).
