 Thanks for the patch (merged); I also added a --disable-maintainer-mode
 flag to configure which we weren't explicitely passing (but should be
 the default since we add AM_MAINTAINER_MODE to configure.ac); I don't
 quite know how timestamp skews have triggerred a recheck here
 overriding maintainer mode being disabled.

 Solution (a) is also implemented in the current version.
