Okay found the issue. It was a minor error in the dist.sh script that
probably wouldn't show up in most peoples environments. It was
capturing the output of the cd command. Since I have $CDPATH set the cd
was ambiguous so bash spat out what dir it really changed to. Commit
to fix coming up on trunk soon.

I'll post a new thread with URLs to test tarballs.
