O, that is bad. This wasn't exactly what the patch was for. It was to
make sure the shark specific patches (and any conditionally patch lists)
would all be included. I see why this happened. ICEDTEA_ECJ_PATCH was
renamed to ICEDTEA_ECJ_PATCHES except in EXTRA_DIST. My patch would also
help with that.

Creating a new release seems like a good idea, to make sure all files
are included.

I haven't tried if make distcheck works. That is always a good thing to
be sure the dist tar ball is complete. But sometimes hard to get working
for the first time.
