There are various tricky cases to be considered with the regenerated files like importlib.h. One of them is that you are supposed to be able to build Python from a read-only source tree. See Issue 15819. Writing files into $(srcdir) would break this.

Also, as I just wrote in that bug, the built Python/importlib.h is already supposed to be searchable. However the logic seems to be broken. Can you see if this patch helps?
