How to handle unused third party libraries in upstream tarball

Hello list !

Going back to gaming again.

I get the following lintian errors in the mame package:

W: mame source: outdated-autotools-helper-file
3rdparty/expat/conftools/config.guess 2011-05-11
E: mame source: source-contains-prebuilt-ms-help-file

We ( of course :) use debian libraries to build the package and don't
use these upstream embedded versions.

Is it fine to silence the Lintian errors ? Should I rather skip this
them when creating the orig tarball ? Is it a case to use the dfsg suffix ?
