Ah, thanks, that was it. I had copied the directory and removed it so it
didn't end up in the tarball I wanted to create.

Seems to be working now, except that once everything has finished
running the version.h file contains a version of, so how do
I get it to reflect the git directory when a git pull --all is giving me
an up to date response? I assume there is another step needed to put
the correct version information where the build tools can find it.
