Ooops. You're absolutely right.

Seems like we could either have buildconf.bat or we could remove
ca-bundle.h, getdate.c, and hugehelp.c from the release archives. Looks
like you generate the release archives from a 'configure'd tree so it's
easier to include them. If so, having a batch file is probably easier.
I'll write one.
