I recently ran 'make sdist' and discovered that I my source tarball was nearly a gigabyte large. Closer inspection revealed that sdist had slurped up executable files for tests that I had run at some point. It would be preferable if 'make sdist' did not do that.

Fixed by running tests in /tmp (#11980).

Although not perfect (if you yourself create some temporary files in the testsuite/ directory, they will still be included in the sdist. So just don't do that if you care about this issue.), I think it's good enough for now. Maybe Hadrian will do better.
