      I guess the 'master' branch had the problem before my last push.

      Yes, you are.

      Why not? The vim binary is also created at src/vim and not directly at
      /usr/bin/vim. That's the distinction between compiling and installing.

      But if you'd ask "why is the tags file included in Vim's sources at
      all?", then I wouldn't know the answer.
      Ah, wait, I have an idea: it's for people using the latest runtime files
      directly from ftp, without installing them with "make install".

      Of course, sorry for being confusing in my explanation.
