Guy already explained what is wrong. The motivation behind this:
When doing an out-of-tree build (if you want to test, do a make
distclean, run autogen.sh, then create a new directory, e.g. build,
cd build and call configure from that working directory).
The problem is, that the script gets called with a set of filenames
that it needs for input but can't find them, as the current directory
is in the build tree. changing the directory to the source tree doesn't
help because the output files need to be created in the build tree.

Gerald: How about changing one of the buildbots to do out-of-tree builds?

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
