> In the package task, it copies the source to dist.dir without using preservelastmodified=true.
This can cause issues with the autotools configure process for the C++ builds. Namely, it
will sometimes think the configure script is out of date with respect to its source files
and try to re-bootstrap, which relies on particular versions of autotools on the building
computer. This isn't something that should be required for those wanting to build from a distribution
tarball.
