Argl, my mistake. And because I hate making mistakes I took some time and I
found a fix!

Please try this patch:

I have absolutely no idea why, but this little "exec" in front causes all this
pain. With it, I can't compile mutt on my machine (with autoconf and automake
installed), without it it's no problem at all.

What I saw is that with this "exec", the "Makefiles" somehow contain a "VPATH"
variable set to the current build directory and both "srcdir" and "top_srcdir"
get set to different values that without this "exec".

The Makefiles seem to be designed as if they presume srcdir and top_srcdir set
to relative rather than absolute paths. With absolute paths, ./po/Makefile
fails to recreate ./keymap_defs.h
