server "make dist" not picking up optional manpages

Hi All,

In hw/xfree86/man/ we now have:

include $(top_srcdir)/
appman_PRE =
fileman_PRE =

appman_PRE +=
fileman_PRE +=

And in
EXTRA_DIST = $(appman_PRE) $(driverman_PRE) $(fileman_PRE)

Normally automake automatically includes build-deps in
"make dist" even if they are in a if ... endif block.

But in this case since we conditionally modify a variable
and then use that in EXTRA_DIST it seems that make dist
is not including and
(as can been seen in the xorg-server- tarbals).

Any suggestions on how to fix this in a clean way ?
