This is good (I hadn't noticed before about the missing .in files in
dist), but I think there are two improvements still to make:

- The transformed scripts (e.g., pm-action) are also distributed,
meaning you'll have a copy of whoever did `make dist'. This can be
avoided by using nodist_*_SCRIPTS for the ones that are transformed.
The CLEANFILES setting has to change to match.

- Instead of adding the non-transformed scripts into EXTRA_DIST, add
the dist_ prefix to their *_SCRIPTS variables.

What do you think?
