patch to avoid sdist-generated MANIFEST files

Here's a patch that will ensure that distutils sdist command will
never try to create a MANIFEST file, since the Mercurial project has
its own for this one.

It's a dumb patch but it'll works for python 2.4 to python 2.7 until
we provide a more suitable --no-manifest option in distutils


Let me know if this works in your process, I'll hang on this list for that
