The issue is the 'save the build files back into the tree' step, used to
ensure we have a copy of these in GIT for those without all the right
tools to regenerate the pidl parser.

On Ubuntu 14.04, that parser is different.  Folks don't notice it on
autobuild on other hosts normally because the whole thing is skipped if
you don't have MakeMaker.
