Alternatively, configure could be responsible for making the skeleton
tree at the same time it puts a Makefile in the build dir. I don't
know if I like this approach but it's achievable with a simple find

I'm still uncertain which approach (VPATH or non-VPATH) we should
take, so I'm trying to reason through the consequences of both.
