tarball and zips both missing packages/OS400/chkstrings.c which is present in the source archive #5142

I did this

Unpacked and attempted to build OS/400, this failed with;

CZS0632: Source stream file could not be opened.
CZM1613: The compilation failed.
ERROR: Failed to build CHKSTRINGS *PGM object!

The packages/OS400/chkstrings.c file is missing, however it is present in the source tarball/zips (i.e. I'm not familiar with how the curl distribution archives are constructed, does EXTRA_DIST in packages/ add extra files in the packages subtree?

I expected the following

Clean build

curl/libcurl version

7.69.0 and 7.69.1 are affected

[curl -V output]

operating system

The later one, the one with "archive" in the link name is automatically generated by github and it shoves everything in the git repo (at that label) into an archive - it thus can't miss out anything that's present in git.

Our actual releases however are generated by the maketgz script and will produce a set of files to include in the release that are not present in git (for example configure and friends). However, it needs the EXTRA_DIST variables in the makefiles to be correct as otherwise it might leave out files. I fixed this issue in PR #5143.

We have basic CI tests that the maketgz includes everything to build a Linux build, but unfortunately your problem was not detected by that test.
