Actually I have the VPATH build working ok for many purposes. What is
broken AFAICT in VPATH build:

make checkbuild
make rpmbuild

Incidentally make rpmbuild is actually wrong in the in tree build as
well in that it doesn't run the system tests (the python/federation
test) as it can't find the python directory.

Danushka - I'd guess that you need to start with a sufficiently clean
tree (for some value of sufficiently)
