I agree DIRECTORY is not a very descriptive -- it was simply variable name already being used before. DIRLINK doesn't explain much more  so I went for the typical PACKAGE_{VERSION/DIR/NAME}

I've added because master's Makefile has it:

	$(DIRECTORY)/src/mesa/depend					\

I thought there was some obscure need.  I removed it now.

Yes. I did compare.  There is more doc files, and additional test programs. I personally don't see reason why not to dist, but exceptions can be easily added.

I confess I was more concerned with all the stuff that should be disted and wasn't -- that was my main motive for doing the cleanup.

Good catch.
