I was running make in src/test/regress.  I was running
make clean, and then make all.  I was trying to figure out
why those files were never there when the tests ran, so
I cd'd to sql and did make all.  I observed that it was deleting
the files.  After I commented out the rm, things seemed to work.
I know it was a hack, but I couldn't see why these files were
getting deleted.  It is a fairly recent GNU make, but I got it 
off a download site.
