The source package is to be usable for a build
outside the source tree. To verify this and 
that a "distclean" works, there is a test

  make distcheck

The 5.0.30 sources don't pass this test.

How to repeat:
Download the 5.0.30 sources, run

  make distcheck

    If --srcdir and --windows is given, check if error message file
    is in source or build tree (bug#24557)
    Cleaned up "ali_check" target, to satisfy "distcleancheck" (bug#24557)
    Added --srcdir=DIR option, used from top Makefile.am in dist-hook
    target, to find "fill_help_tables.sql" in VPATH build (bug#24557)
    Work around problem with "distcleancheck", "sql_yacc.cc" might be in both
    the source and build tree.
    Call "mysql_install_db" with new option --srcdir, to enable the script
    to find all that is needed, if source and build directory is not the same
