Ian provided a helpful workaround for this, which I'll look over and
probably commit, but for other distributions that do this I've
implemented automatic workarounds.  I can do that for OpenSUSE, too, if
you'll tell me absolute paths for the build and source dirs that it
uses, so I can figure out how to munge the names.
