If I delete it before running configure, I get the following:

(yadda yadda) 
checking for com_err in -lcom_err... no
configure: WARNING: Parts of com_err distribuion were found, but not
configure: WARNING: Will build com_err from included sources.
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating man/Makefile

config.status: creating et/Makefile
config.status: error: cannot find input file: et/Makefile.in

If I delete the et directory after running configure, make complains about
the missing directory.
