[solved]automake distclean does work, but distcheck gives error

When I run auto hell stuffs+configure) and type "make distclean", I get a proper result(which can be built).
However, when running and then "make distcheck", I get an error:
rm -f Makefile
ERROR: files left in build directory after distclean:
make[1]: *** [distcleancheck] 1 הלקת
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tal/Projects/MPRIS_Applet/GNOME_MPRIS_Applet/gnome-mpris-applet-0.0.1/_build'
make: *** [distcheck] 1 הלקת

Other than that, everything works like magic. But if distcheck say something is wrong, he probably right.
Also, you shell noticed than this scripts compile from vala language if compiler exist, otherwise it use C compiler.
(Vala compiles first to C, and then to binaries)
So, why it keeps failing?

My work(108 kb):gnome-mpris-applet-0.0.1.tar.bz2

Thanks, someone has already given me the answer.
For it work perfectly, change the if statement in src/ to this:


And remove the "GNOME_MPRIS_Applet_SOURCES" deceleration after the if.
