make distcheck and minor Makefile discrepancies


I tired to build tinymail today and found that ./ modifies
libtinymail-camel/camel-lite/COPYING. Why is the copyright notice just
a reference? Either the full license should be commited to SVN or
./ should not modify it.

libtinymail-camel/camel-lite/{INSTALL,COPYING}.autogen_bak are being
created by ./ Maybe they could be added to .svnignore?

make distcheck did not at all succeed. I know tinymail is not up for a
release yet, but personally I think distcheck is a good way to detect
some mistakes. The first error was caused by some files in
camel's EXTRA_DIST which are not there anymore. The attached patch is
probably a sufficient fix.

The next problem was not that trivial. Maybe someone has an idea what
the fix should be here?
