I don't think anyone has tried a VPATH build starting from a
distribution tarball.  The OP is correct that things are going to fall
over in that case.  My thought about fixing it was that postgres.bki
and related files ought to be forced to be built/used in $(srcdir),
but I didn't get further than that.  Peter, what do you think?
