It appears this is a bit more complicated than I thought.  DragonEgg uses
gengtype to generate a header, but the header itself is needed during this
generation!  So, a bootstrap version is provided in their SVN.  Yes, I do
find this confusing.

I think that for now it's fine to use the pregenerated version.  It's not
clear to me that auto-generating a new one during build would have any

If you don't mind, please leave this bug open in spite of that.  This way
at least the "gengtype question" is documented.
