Iff these are actually free and come with source you can silence lintian
(you also need to include all of these unused files e.g. in
debian/copyright then!). I'm not sure that is the case for the .chm?
Anyway removing stuff from the tarball makes sure you don't accidentally
build against (parts) of these embedded copies! That's mostly the reason
I tend to always strip stuff.
