We use "make distcheck" which is the standard way of making a package
based on the autotools, and has been the way we have made Xenomai
package since day 1.

"make distcheck" checks that the package compilation works.

It ensures that users of the Xenomai package can regenerate a new
package from the sources we provide.

And it does not look that much more complicated than the pipeline using
git archive.

Anyway, I will add it, but I will wait a bit to re-generate a in
order to see if we have no other issue.
