I fixed this earlier today in revision
d099171ee31d90bd54837d8a813b1412fd6ac240. Please let me know if it
works for you.
Removing $(srcdir) altogether is not correct as that changes the
intended behaviour of these rules. See below.

True, and yes it is ugly. But this should only matter if you build
from a checkout of the repository. distfiles include a pregenerated
copy of all documentation (hence why I have to put the files in
srcdir), so a read-only srcdir is fine for formal releases. I think
it's a reasonable compromise.
