I think that ensuring that make distcheck works at release time is the
maintainers responsibility. It is only important that it works at the
time the release is made. There is little value in being pestered about
every time a checkin temporarily breaks make distcheck, e.g. because a
new symbol was added without adding it to gtk.symbols.
