This particular error comes from plain "make", not "make check" or "make
distcheck". It's emitted by this chunk of Makefile.am. You don't see
it? Maybe the code in the makefile needs some improvement.
# If we're checked out from a Git repository, make sure that every
# file that is in Git is distributed.
# We only enable this check when GNU make is in use because the
# Makefile in datapath/linux, needed to get the list of files to
# distribute, requires GNU make extensions.

Automake always distributes AUTHORS because the GNU standards say that
it should exist.
