 It's very likely an automake effect. Things that are not explicitly set
to be distributed in Makefile.am are not included in the distribution. For
instance the contrib directory is not included at present because not listed
in top level Makefile.am and it counts for a good 200kb.
 If you want to be sure that the resulting distribution compiles and passes
tests you can do

 make distcheck

 instead of

 make dist

 it takes longer but does a make + make check using the generated .tar.gz
which is the only real way to guarantee that you distribute something that
indeed compiles and passes the existing tests.
 
 If you want to add the contrib directory in the distribution (I'm not sure)
append it to EXTRA_DIST. To prevent distribution of CVS directories add the
following to the top level Makefile.am:

dist-hook:
        find $(distdir) -depth -name CVS -print | xargs rm -fr
