That's intentional. That way you can re-compile the package, when one of 
the packages that this package depends on has been changed.

Note that you should never pack this file, that would be useless.

Unless if you want to distribute a binary version of a fpmake-package. 
You have to add the -fsp parameter to the fpmake-executable to provide 
the path to the sources. The official fpc-releases should do so...
