well, the point is that there is not much interest in generating this file
at compile time!
apart for the specific case of users running the svn version.
But in this case, we need the template to be generated before the configure

IMO, the best solution here is for such users to use the snapshots instead
of the SVN.
SVN checkout should really be reserved to developers, not users in need of
the latest developments.
We may also add a warning or a command (make refresh) to ensure everything
is up to date without the need to call make dist.
