I think that's working with my hack and with a real tarball. Thanks.
There is still a can of worms in this area. If I do a git pull and build to
setup that cache, then do an edit but no commit, version.py doesn't show any
difference between the before/after than edit.

The c file from bison goes into xxx/host/ntpd/ntp_parser.tab.c
so waf knows how to work with source files that aren't in the source tree.
But I don't know if python can find them.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
