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, doesn't show any 
difference between the before/after than edit.

The c file from bison goes into xxx/host/ntpd/
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.
