The point is that in VPATH you are running in a build tree, and should
copy the source files from the source tree, but *not* modify the source
tree.  Thus, fetching relative to $srcdir but writing relative to .
is in fact the correct behavior.

There has not previously been any complaint that pg_regress was broken
in this regard, so maybe you should take two steps back and explain what
problem you think needs fixing, rather than just dropping a patch on us.
