The problem is, in Python 2.6.2, line 357 of sdist.py.
This ends up applying the following:
exclude_pattern: applying regex r'^build.*'

You can disable the prune option with --no-prune
you can also uset the the MANIFEST.in template file to define what's in your distribution.
That's for distutils. Beware that if you use Subversion and setuptools, it doesn't work the same way depending on what you've included in your repo, but at the end MANIFEST.in has the last word if you use it.
