  I'm not really going to lose sleep over it since I now primarily use 
srcdir != builddir anyway, but I strongly suggest that if we continue down 
this path of relying on it, we include scripts right in the toplevel 
directories of the modules and in the tarballs that completely automate this 
to a level not even done yet today.  Docs should also be included at those
