This change adds an explicit dependency on for every file it
generates, except java files. Java is left for another time because it's
considerably trickier.

It also adds a build rule for src/ so it can be rebuilt as required
from other directories.

It does this by creating a top level make file,, which can be
included from sub-directories. sub-directories need to define 'generator_built'
to include local files which are built by, and they will be updated

This fixes parallel make, and will automatically re-create generated files when
make is run from any directory.

It also fixes the problem which efad4f53 was targetting. Specifically,
src/guestfs_protocol.(c|h) had an erroneous dependency on stamp-generator, and
therefore, despite not being directly created by it. This caused
them to be recreated every time ran rather than only when
src/guestfs_protocol.x was updated, which cascaded into a daemon and therefore
appliance update.

This patch also changes the contents of the distribution tarball by including
files created by rpcgen.

this see:

    Convenience function which combines part_init & part_add,
