make distcheck fails in uninformative way when xutils-dev not installed

Bug Description

when running 'make distcheck' after ./ in the client source tree, I get:

make[3]: Entering directory `/home/rmcbride/canonical/ubuntuone-client/'
if test "x." != "x.."; then \
  /bin/mkdir -p ubuntuone; \
  /bin/mkdir -p tests; \
  (cd ubuntuone && false ../../ubuntuone > /dev/null); \
  (cd tests && false ../../tests > /dev/null); \
make[3]: *** [ubuntuone] Error 1

This is apparently due to xutils-dev not being installed on the affected system.

per discussion w/ Rodney in IRC, I'm writing this and assigning directly to him as he has thought of a solution to make the issue more obvious and discoverable at an earlier point in the process.
