Woo! This took a while:

pacman-3.0.0 archives ready for distribution:

But after some checkins on the way, make dist and all its relatives
(make distcheck, make dist-bzip or whatever) should be working great.
The only problem so far is that make distcheck runs a clean config,
and we need it to run with --disable-fakeroot. Otherwise we have a
completely working autotools CVS -> source package solution, as far as
I can tell.
