If your package does not use autoconf (or automake) there is no
reason to include these files.
But don't get me wrong, I am not talking about the package requiring
that autoconf is installed, but that it includes a ./configure which
was generated by autoconf from configure.(in|ac).
I.e. usually you have to keep up to date but you don't need to *add*
them if they are not present in the original sourcetree.
